2001 BMW 325xi Q&A

2001 BMW 325xi Question: slight to moderate vibration upon acceleration at highway speeds

I just had the thermostat replaced along with the power steering hoses. A week later driving 120 miles round trip I noticed some vibration from the left side upon acceleration. The car did not pull to one side or another, the tires aren't low. Anywhere from 60-85mph I'll get that vibration even on cruise control going up a hill. -
Answer 1
Placebo. Thermostat and p/s hoses are not linked to the symptoms described Schedule for a rotate and balance of the weeks. -
Answer 2
Also try the bushings on the front control arms. -
Answer 3
Check the Center support bearing on the driveshaft. The rubber housing deteriorates afer time and causes the drive shaft to be unbalanced and may cause the feeling you are describing. -
