The vibration between 60-70mph is 90% gone, but I am still getting some intermittent mild vibration at around 70-75mph.

OK.Thanks for the update and i would appreciate what your current position is. I have something similar.

2002 330CI. Mostly highway driving. 179K miles. Not abused.

I started with a vibration at 80mph. (it has been about 1 month since front control arms/bushing change). Due to this, I had the tires balanced. Now the vibrations are at 60MPH BUT it comes and goes! (just like you mentioned in your original post). Car is going back to mechanic to recheck but i am curious about your outcome or anyone else's input.


People believe in Ghosts, UFOs, talking to the dead, advertising, magic, curses, voodoo dolls, Elvis' death faked, the Great Pumpkin, Tupac still lives, the WWF, that all the moon walks were staged, real unstaged audience questions in talk shows, JFK's conspiracy assination theories, TWA 800 shoot down conspiracy theories, the image of the Virgin Mary appearing on a left over pizza, that Dr. Laura has no bias, that homosexuality is a choice, the guests on Jerry Springer, the TV illness of the month, that guns don't hurt people do, that CNN doesn't hype stories, the Osbornes not being staged, that a pill can make you loose weight without ever dieting or excercising, that there's a cure for baldness, aging and being short, that Britney Spears doesn't lip sync, That KFC is a healthy food choice, that the British Royal family isn't disfunctional, that there really were weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, that all Arabs are the same, that Muslims encompass everyone from Indonesia to Morocco and they are all extremists, that all Americans are the same, that's it's always cold in Canada, that cigarettes aren't addictive, that it's ok to drink but not ok to smoke up.........and on and on and on and on...... so what on Earth makes anyone believe that there is something unusual about people fearing the number 13 or astrology?
