I have been told that it could be a driveshaft problem, center bearing. My first question is, does the 528i e39 have any problems with the driveshafts, and secondly, if not the driveshaft, what else could it be. I have replaced the tires...had a road force variation test at the bmw dealership. I have also had the tires rotated and balanced. The vibration is still there in the same spot.

I got the 17" with SP 2000E as well which is my only way to know that my car has the SP (ya and 14.1" ride hieght).. I am in the process of replacing my tires still didn't decide but they definitely are going to be summer.

dste0713 said:has the 2000 528i had any driveshaft problems that you know of? Also, I have found that I have to use OEM rotors and pads. Has that been your experience as well?
