hi all
i have an 04 525i with approx 23k kilometers.
i find that at low speeds the car is very rigid to drive in and on the highway every corrugation is noticed by the front and back passengers.
i am running nonflats all round
any help is appreciated

a cheap solution would be putting a soft cushion on your seat.

Interesting question. Is there a chance that corrugation could be described as road feel and feedback? BMWís arenít going to be the best choice if youíre looking for an isolated driving experience. My wifeís Lexus is the steering wheel I grab when Iím in that mood.

Replacing your RF tires may give you a slight difference. Short of moving to softer springs and suspension the ride isnít going to result in much of a change. No offenses to be taken but if you have the non-sport package (and there isnít a mechanical issue with your E60) the truth could be youíre in the wrong vehicle.

Of course this is assuming your definition of a "highway" is a paved road. :D

If you hate harder ride with BMW 525i. You guys should switched to Lexus in first place!
