Under hard acceleration, have noticeable audible vibration, although it is not felt in steering wheel or elsewhere. Would appreciate any thoughts, as am taking car to dealer Tues for oil change.

You indicate the $105 fee is too high. My experience is that if you contact the wheel guy directly,rather than going through the dealer, you can save about 40%.

When I said "wheel," I meant the center vent. If I move it toward red, the problem is alleviated. Notw/standing, I don't think I should be getting cooled air unless I have the A/C switch turned on.

Z4 lease

2011 lease ends March '14. Any word as to whether BMW financial can be expected to allow 3- month early out, or "pull ahead," I think they call it. Local dealer has no clue.
