There was a vibration in the drive train at low speeds up to about 10-25 mph. The issue was the center support bearing went out, there was no more rubber left. Replaced the center support bearing and the vibration on the driveshaft was gone. Issue was on a 95 bmw 540 i

Bought car and drive train seemed to vibrate excessively when switching to fifth gear (automatic).
