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.
Granny drive? haha But good to have the horsepower just in case .

Thanks for the tips/info! Hopefully someone from BMW reads this. Yes the car is still under warranty .
