Mein Auto: 750Li
06 750Li engine vibration coasting around 55-60 mph

I have had my 2006 750Li for about 20 months with about 48,000 miles on it now. Ever since the car was new, I would experience engine vibration around 1500-2000 rpms when the car is coasting at around 55-60 mph. It almost feels like a hesitation such as when you are driving manual transmission and you forget to down shift and the engine feels like it is getting ready to stall. Despite many trips to the dealership and many software upgrades the problem is still there. I wonder if anyone else here has experienced (or still experiencing) the same problem and if there is a fix.

Thanks

How have you been able to isolate the vibration as engine vibration vs. tire imbalance?
