I have the same problem as mentioned since 18 month and countless repair tries. First F10 was replaced after one year but new onw has the problem. Can it be from the active steering wheel? Does anyone have this option and the vibration?

I had the same vibratio issues with my winter wheels.To be mention that I bought my car 10 months ago so Im still in the guarantee period . After visiting BMW several times, changing tires x4 than wheelsx4, always with OEM products, ballancing than reballancing, no solution had been fund.Lakely a mechanic from a small workshop gave me the solution.Wheel hub center rings. Seems umbeliavable but some BMW wheels models are not properly centred on the hub. It is a small differences, millimiters, but this matters. My withter wheels are star 327.
After installing hub rings, those annoying vibration observed between 110-130km/h were disappearing completelly.

IT was the worst 1 year of my life with a car ever! I sold it off and jumped ship the new 2013 Lexus GS350 F-Sport sedan and I am very happy now.
Good for you, no problems in my 535i 6MT

Odds are, the next F10 you order will not be a regret

I know that Krill has recieved his car (I'm still waiting) and I understood that he was happy with it, maybe he will write something about it himself?
