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
Thanks, I actually granny drive more these days than "driveth furiously or like a madman" especially if los ninos are with me.

I think you are still in warranty and BMW should do what it takes to solve the vibration. Over on the LS460 forum, they have a wind noise problem coming from poor adhesive at the triangle just ahead of the mirrore. Lexus has installed dual pane glass and other concoctions fo fix it without resolution. A forum member found the issue, detailed a simple cheap solution, aolved the problem and Lexus corporate policy is not to accept any outside ideas (similar to many companies to protect them from litigation from roaylty claims were a company to use your idea).

BMW needs to farm the job out to a specialty tire shop (not Sears or Costco). I don't think "road force balancing" is the same as "on the car balancing" but it may be. Again, driveshaft, bent wheel, etc won't correct with balancing of any kind.
