Car shaking at highway speeds

Hi there, my 1998 e46 318i is driving me nuts cause i have this problem, the whole car shakes at highway speeds and the steering wheel has a little play on it.

I have replaced the Guibo, tyres, front control arms did a alignment and it stills shakes! the car has 210000klm.

I know the suspension is a bit toasted, but i am wondering what else could be wrong on the steering that might cause this problem.

Thanks

If you have low profile tires, check to make sure your wheels aren't bent. Almost every BMW I've had (three) have had bent wheels and drove much better after taking them to a wheel repair shop.

Do you have aftermarket wheels on there?
