My dad's E39 540i steering wheel shakes at...

only 80km/h. If you go 5-10km/h over or under the shaking stops and the car is totally smooth. We have never been able to figure out what is wrong with the car and he has gotten alignments and make sure the wheels are balanced, as well as tire pressure. Does anyone have an explaination of why the steering would only shake at 80km/h on the speedo?

His car has also developed this low deep sound when in idle at a stop. He has an automatic so if we shift into neutral the deep sound goes away. Once back into drive it comes back...weird stuff. Other than that his car still drives like it's new and it is just a tad under 200,000kms!

Sorry if I'm posting about this E39 question here....it seems a lot of you are quite well educated at how a vehicle works and also it's way more busy and faster reply here!
