On top of that the 550i GT has a 46% 2 year lease residual...they have no confidence in the future value of their cars, so why should I?

I wish the original poster the best of luck in getting this resolved...its a terrible situation.
THanks for the encouragement TGray5. Let me assure you not all the 7 series have this issue. I have a few friends that have the new 7(one with 20" sport and the other Li model) and they ride smooth. Nobody including myself will accept this car that shimmy's and vibrates that is very noticeable.

IF you do go for a new BMW...make sure you make the deal subject to test drive upon delivery.

All the best!
