Question Wierd vibration

I had developed a vibration in the rear of my 92 740i, I took it to the mechanic who has recently replaced the front and rear brakes as well as the rotors on both... he showed me the rubber was ripping off of the drive shaft on the left rear, so he replaced BOTH axles... the vibration was better but not gone, so I thought maybe the rim or tires... I put new rubber all the way around.... still shaking, then I put on my winter wheels, the vibration got a little better but still there, it's ALWAYS worse when its sat and cooled off, after driving it for about 10 minutes or so it calms down a bit. is there anything that maybe the mechanic missed or maybe when he bolted in the new axle it didnt line up perfectly? Any and all ideas would be GREATLY appreciated!!
