X5 shuddering when under power!!!!
I'm hoping somebody has the answer? I have an 2000 x5 4.4 which has started to shudder/wobble once warm from about 30/40 mph when under power, when you take foot off the accelerator it's smooth ride...... I have had new tyres, and balanced all round- still did not solved the problem. Have been to two independent mechanics, both have test drove it, had it on the ramps etc and cannot find why the car wobbles!

I would be grateful for any advise!

Thank you

Something called the GUIBO . Mine was doing the same thing. I had it replaced now it is smooth.

Thank you, I will look into that....was it expensive to fix!

No , seems like it was around 280.00 with labor with an indi mechanic .

Could you post your thoughts when you get it fixed?
I have exactly the same problem with mine as well. A couple of mechanics I've asked don't have a clue what it is and the parts guy at BMW service centre had no idea either.
