Check your tire pressure and the condition of your tires first and foremost.

I did confirm that my tire pressure was the same on all 4 tires, max 51psi, I confirmed 45psi.
Am I fooling myself thinking it's only at low speeds but it never really wobbles, just that slight shimmy at low speeds. I scheduled to visit EAS next week.

sorry to jump in here but...you're tire pressure is way to high. look inside your gas cap and you will find the correct tire pressure setting. front is 30psi and rear is 33 psi (michelin pilot tires)
