There is an UNBEARABLE vibration in my 328i as soon as you hit and climb above speeds of 80km/h. This makes highway driving absolutley horrendous, does anyone know what's up?
I went to RMP today and we noticed the front right tire had a bump in it, causing the cyclic vibrations the faster I went. It seemed that the vibration was stemming from this area so we checked the tire first. Now, immediatley after we swapped the tires I went for a quick test run and the car drove like a beauty - it stayed well planted all the way through 160km/h - somehting that hasn't happened for about 2 years! (read on). However, tonight (about 7 hours later) I had to go down to Mississauga and the vibration came back.. just as noticeable - if not moreso than before
Anyways, 2 years ago I ended up smashing the car into a curb after trying to avoid a sutpid animal on the road
The rim was done with, so I ended up buying a new one. Could this have had an impact on perhaps teh tie rods, ball joints, or even the suspension?
It seems like my joy was shortlived after RMP's handywork. Thanks to Mark for taking the time to quickly help me out! You guys seem great, looks like I've finally found an independent tech
Anyone got any clue to WTF is going on here?
