SL350 but miss my SL500
I've noticed that my R230 (Automatic) has developed a bit of vibration when putting in gear and pulling away:

Put it in drive and move off - very brief and slight vibration
Put in reverse and move off - very brief and slight vibration

Nothing noted during normal driving.

Is this a sign of something bad on the way or something that requires maintenance?

Thanks

Get the ATF checked for glycol contamination would be my suggestion. sooner rather than later.

That one
More than likely to be your engine mounts.
