    Hi Guys as per the title my f10 520d msport with factory 19" rims has a strange vibration in the drivers seat when driving between 70 to 80 mph. No amount of balancing seems to make it better. And ive read that this is a problem that affects the f10. Does anyone have this problem with their f10 and what is the soloution? Thanks in advance

    I felt the same when I got my f10 530 but getting 4 wheel alignment and all wheels balanced along with swopping from run flats 100% improvement

    Hi There
    Have you removed and replaced any of your wheels recently, I had a similar issue above 70mph, the cause was the dealer not cleaning the brake rotor when then tyre was changed, if the alloy has been in one place for a while, and the rotor has rusted a little, then if you put the wheel back on and it’s not in exactly the same position it will cause it to vibrate, worth a try as a cheap fix.

    Reminds me of the E39 'shimmy' issues, where some examples could be very sensitive to any wheel and/or hub run-out, imbalance or slight suspension wear. Wheel mounting accuracy was a critical part of reducing and eliminating shimmy. Doesn't take much of a mounting error to amplify the problem at the rolling frequency bands where we get shake.

    Even road force balances, which help in a lot of problem situations, can't always correct some wheel and tyre issues.
