Can you be more specific on the vibration?
When you are in the vehicle, do you feel alot fo vibes at idle?

LOL actully the day after i changed my spark plugs the vibration has gone away, before when you were in the drivers seat you could feel the vibration when you were at stop signs or traffic lights. but does anyone have info on recalls on this car?

That could be it. Also, what kind of spark plugs did you use? OEM?

platnium plugs are not the best with our ignition system. OEM plugs is one of the few instances when OEM is the best option. THe BMW "shake" is a common and normal characteristic of our cars. Every car has its own personality, thats why I love these cars..
