Vibrations/Rumbling of entire car when making sharp turns

I let this girl borrow my 335i for a couple of days () and just got it back today and I noticed that when I make a sharp turn not a 90 degree turn but more of a wide turn at like 40-45mph the entire car feels like the tires are bouncing up very quickly like vibrating on the road and it makes the entire cabin shake...I have no idea what it is...I get my car serviced at bmw regularly and they have never said anything about it.. any help please

Wow....did you do a visual inspection of the tires when straight and when turned sharply (parked, of course!)?
Does the car track true when driving straight ahead?
Do the tires themselves look good? That is, no cupping or feathering, no chunks missing from the rubber, etc.

I recently got my alignment when I got new tires in November 2012..I guess thats not so recently...time really flies by
Ill lift up the car 2moro and take a look myself i doubt theres chunks of the tire missing but ill take a look
it just feels like the car would be losing grip and regaining grip very quickly but sideways not because im giving too much gas and the traction control light doesnt come on either
its like the car bumps around very harshly i feel like my cabin is falling apart
