sounds like your clutch is slipping. if it's not throwing a cel then it's
probably not anything engine related [most problems that would cause that
rough of running would cause the cel to light up.
depending on mileage and if you plan to keep it, i would get a new dual mass
flywheel as well. the flywheel uses a rubber bonded center that wears out.
bummer tho, i need to get mine done, it's 1000 in labor anywhere you go plus
parts. you can get an oem clutch for ~$300. DMFW runs ~500 but may not be
