My first guess was alignment, but even at low speeds?

We are having the exact same issue with our 09 RX350. Vibration when idling in gear, worse when engine is cold. Plan to have dealer check it out during next service.

Ask a good mechanic to check the engine mounts...

Just a quick update:
The van has 14k miles and nothing has improved.
Last dealer i saw, took out all the engine mounts, inspected them (ok) and told me that the engine block was tilted a little bit to one side, he put everything back and install the engine with the right angle but nothing improved.
I called Toyota HQ and they told me to speak to the service manager and ask him to use their special technical support line that only services managers can access.
I did that and he told me that he will call back, i am still waiting.
As i said before, this same problems has some Lexus RX350's and still i haven't found a solution.
One thing i know it's not the engine, because it is quite and very powerful.
Maybe the transmission?
If anyone can help me with this, i would really appreciate it because this slight vibration drives me insane and it's still felt on the steering wheel (at 700rpm) and on the interior door panels (at 600-650rpm)
