It's amazing the reliance BMW technicians have on the computer to diagnose a problem. There are plenty of things that can go wrong with these vehicles which are not monitored by the computers.

Take Graham132white's recommendation of looking into the rear chassis bushings. To my knowledge rear chassis bushings are not monitored by the computer. And if he's right about these bushings being the problem BMW technicians will never know as the computer didn't tell them to examine them.
