Mein Auto: 2005 BMW X3
Vibration when slowing down

Hi I have a 2005 BMW X3 that vibrates when I let the foot off the gas there is a distinct vibrating. I'm thinking that this is the x drive, I had it looked at because there was vibration and stuttering around turns and shutting during acceleration and they said there were metal shards in the transfer case. I replaced the oil in the transfer case with some cheap oil form advanced auto parts and that is my temporary fix for the problem and it stopped the acceleration stutter. Eventually it will need to be replaced or rebuilt. But I'm wondering if the vibration is from something completely unrelated.. There are also some bearings on the serpentine belt that are going but I highly doubt that is related

The transfer box is not from an army truck that can be treated like **** and keeps ticking. The tyres must all be the same radius, and the oil must be the right stuff. The whumping you experience when you lift off is the mismatched tyres.
