minor shaking in the steering wheel

new car. slight shaking around 40-50 mph. Could tires be off-balance on a brand new car? Anyone has had the same issue?

Yep, had a car replaced because of it. Ended working out well tho, they took my 328 and gave me a 335 for less money

how did you get them to replace the car (as opposed to try to repair it?) isn't it yours the minute you drive off the lot?

service thinks they can fix it; dropping off tomorrow.

Florida lemon law says it is a lemon if problem persists after 3 service attempts.

I know this is an old post, but Id also like to know how you got them to replace the car from one steering vibration incident??? My car has and has had it since I purchased it new with 43 miles on it. And for 55k, its freaking annoying as hell!!!

Hmm... my car has minor shaking at around 60 MPH. I suppose I could use that as an excuse to get into a 340i... but really I just get into 70's and it goes away.
