Ultimate7, I'm glad your issue has been resolved. I'm getting all new tires today, which should solve my vibrations. My last visit to a shop for a second opinion found three bad tires on the road force machine. Supposedly they were brand new tires. We shall see after today's visit. Enjoy your beast, finally.

Mein Auto: 745I
I recently had the same exact symptoms on my 5 series. It shook a little on the steering wheel but mostly from the seat (and everywhere generally). It wasn't noticable at low speeks but around 45mph it because really apparent.

It turned out to be the left rear tire that had separation near the inside bead so it was very hard to see. Could be possible that the new tires you got are faulty. I would try rotating the tires because if it's the tire, you'll know right away because you will feel it in your steering wheel. At least that way you'll know if the problem is from a bent rim/bad tire or if the symptomes stay the same after the tire rotation, you'll know if it's something like wheel bearing or bent axle.

I got new tires today, the shop warrantied them. The 45minute ride home was more like a glide. Local streets felt smooth as well. I will continue to drive it this week and see if it really gone.
