Vibrations during idle (800-900rpm)

Hi guys, I'm a new MK7 1.4TSI DSG owner. The car is about 2 years old and has around 32k kms on the clock. What I've noticed is that when the car comes to stop and idles at about 850rpm, I can feel minor vibrations coming through the front seats but not the steering wheel. The vibrations goes away above 950rpm. I just collected my car back from the AD after informing them of the fault and they claimed to have adjusted the engine mountings but the vibration still persists.

Is this a normal occurrence?

Thanks.

Are you pushing the brake pedal hard when at idle or letting up slightly? The RPM's will rise a little if you're not pushing the brake pedal hard enough causing the clutch to engage.

I fully depressed the brake pedal each time. Sometimes it idles at 1000rpm I( believe when the battery does not have enough charge?) then it's completely fine.

I brought it into my VW agent and they said the engine mounts were fine.
