Hi,

Looking for some advice please - I have a 2001 330Ci with 116k miles (UK RHD)

When driving at speeds from 65mph - 90mph the car shakes. It's doesn't feel like balancing as it's not felt specifically through the steering wheel and you can visibly see the nearside (Left from driver seat) mirror, passenger seat shake. It is worse in the passenger seat. I have had the front wheels balanced, new tyres and balancing again.

Any thoughts or things to check appreciated!

Matt

Bass is turned down - :lmao: Although that did actually cause the back shelf to vibrate a lot until I'd insulated it.


Front bushes are <12months old rear <36 months. I will visually inspect them at the weekend.

Wheel bearings could be a possibility - can they be DIY checked?

Could a binding rear brake cause this problem?

Guibo or drive shaft center bearing. Trailing arm bushings and dragging emergency brake are also possibilities. Struts/shocks are OK?
