Anyhoo, has anyone tried "on the car balancing" of the wheels. I had a chronic issue with my 87 300E and a guy whose Alfa Milano Verde I was test driving told me about the same problem and "on the car balancing" solved his vibration. It balances the wheel, tire, rotor, hub, bearings, i.e. and rotatinal component relative to the wheel. I never had another problem and did not rotate ever again once the balance was perfect on my E. Rotation was not necessary with the 3.0 putting out only 177hp and 188ft.lb to the rear wheels.

On the car balancing will NOT solve a defective component like a driveshaft, U jount, etc.
Thanks for the tips. Hmmmm....you think that BMW would try whatever it takes to get rid of this vibration issue...hmmm.

Hey like your id btw II Kings 9:20...didn't know what bible verse that was so I had to look it up and it made me laugh
