How to make my 325i ride smooth

I just got my 325i today!!! I really really really love it. The only thing is that it doesn't ride smooth. When I'm accelerating I can feel slight shaking in my steering wheel and in the car in general. What would make the car do this? Does it just need a tune up? It probably hasn't been tuned up in a long time. Any Suggestions would be very welcome.

Wheel balencing most likely, could be broken belts in the tyres too.
other suggestions.......
Ball joints.
Bad break disks.
Could be a warn gebo.
Or warn bushings.
Exhaust leak would cause a vibration but no shake.
Bad cv joint is always a possibility.
And worst case scenario Unbalanced driveshaft.
