BMW 328ix Auto - shakes at speeds 40-80 when accelerating slightly

Weird right? It seems to only happen when I am barely pushing the pedal...and the car shakes. You can feel it especially on the center console and a little on the steering wheel, and in your ass. 44K. Any ideas? Its going in on Monday. Thanks all!

Long time ago, I had an E36 with somewhat similar symptoms. Through persistence, I got the dealer to call in BMW Regional and send a supertech out, BMW NA replaced the entire driveshaft. I forget the circumstances leading up to that, but NO, no accident ever!

Mein Auto:
Check your coils. I had that problem any time i was accelerating in my '06 E90 330i. Turned out to be a cylinder misfire and was fixed after changing all 6 coils (1 per cylinder). I don't know if the shaking was more or less violent than what you are experiencing, but i'd still check coils.

Find a code reader and plug it up to see if your car is giving any codes. If it reads a cylinder misfire, coils would be a good guess to be what the problem is. You can rent one from autozone if you don't have one, just make sure it fits your plug.

If you end up changing coils, remember to put dielectric grease inside the bottom of the coils to keep a good connection with the spark plugs. Best of luck!

I had the same problem on mine; it was the driveshaft bridge support carrier bearing. While the driveshaft is removed during bearing replacement, the shaft balance should be checked.
