Got your wheels balanced again too?

Alignment?

What makes you suspect the strut mounts? That's rare.
I replaced the control arms recently. If you are talking about the tie-rod ball joints, they are certainly a possibilty. Mileage is at ~150K. Other BMWs I'd owned with a lot more miles did not need tie-rods replaced. So it's an educated guess. But still, a possibility.

Wheels are balanced, alignment is fresh. Again, other BMWs I'd owned had bad strut mount bearings when removed, that's why I suspect them.

I am all ears for other possibilities tough...
