Thanks for all the ideas.

The vibration is more like a tremendously out of balance tire (if that makes sense), up to the point of loose lug nuts and a tire about to come off.

Interesting to hear about the recall. I had this problem last month on my 08 535xi. I guess timing is everything.

Here's the good news: It was a very easy fix. The replacement bracket was...

I've done some searching and found only one related post in the 6-series forum a long time ago, which has no replies. So, I'll try to see if there are any more experiences with this nuisance...

I believe that this is the "engine malfunction" icon. (Looks like what I've seen recently on my 2008 535xi.) Does the message display indicate something about reduced power?

If so, you could be...

Sounds similar to a sporadic problem I have. I don't know if I would call the sound static, but more like a low frequency buzz. Do you have HD radio? My buzzing goes away when I turn HD off. ...

Lots of views, and no ideas? :angel:

My Treo 650, while it drives me nuts and I'm about to replace it, seems to pair perfectly. I don't know that this helps, but its my experience. BTW, service is Verizon.

Oh - BTW, is that for all four tires? $30 a year for all four tires, or is that per tire? If its all four, that's about a no brainer. I think I'm about to pay for decades of that!
