Mein Auto: 2009 328i
Post Tom

My '09 328i seems to have a vibration coming from the rear. I took it to the dealership today, they said the rear tires needed balancing and there was nothing else wrong. They balanced the rear tires and it felt smoother a I left the shop but before I got home I could feel the vibration again. Reminded me of a truck I used to own that went through rear u-joints in the drive shaft. Anyone have any ideas or suggestions??

I recommend prudence before parting w/cash. Exactly how did they diagnose imbalanced tires? Vague reply is the red flag of ignorance & idolatry - get a clear technical explanation or wish them a very nice day.

Need perspective. On the down low, post a photo of your rear treads. Age? Brand? Model?

When was your last alignment? Post image of alignment results.
