F30 335xi weird vibration in the wheel ... no wobble

Hello guys! I have read most of the threads about wheel vibration in the new F30s. Well I just got my new (600miles love the car) 335xi sport line, vss, dhp and compared with the old 328xi I feel some kind of vibrations but no wobble while driving regarding the speed. Am I being paranoic or is this how the new steering rack feels, or is it how the turbo engine feels? I adjusted the tire pressure, but nothing changed. I'd appreciate any feedback.

I got the car back today and in the mean time I drove a 535xi GT that had a similar road noise. After talking and taking a test drive with the shop foreman he said that he cold find nothing wrong and that the different noise could be from the Pirelli RFs the car is equipped with. I'm fine with the explanation since there is no wheel wobble at all. He also said that the new chassis is stiffer.

So you we're experiencing the surface of road as oppose to the steering vibrating. Good news.

Yep, the road noise using Pirelli's much different than the with the Michelin's I had on the 328xi. So this case is closed
