OK, I have a 96 328 with about 122,000 km.
I am noticing a vibration from what seems to be the mid/rear of the car. It's not violent but it is quite apparent.
At first I though it was just the wheels out of balance but it doesn't feel like that.
I can really notice the vibration at higher speeds.
So, any diagnosis? Wheel bearings maybe? I'm going to bring it to my mechanic but I just want to get an idea of what it could be.

The guibo typically goes out before the bearing does since the guibo is a load bearing elemnt. It's constantly under stress when your driving, the bearing just holds the axle in place so it dosn't go anywhere.
It could be the bearing, but most likely it's the guibo. Take a look under your car right at the transmission output flange and there will be the guibo. Feel it (if you can reach it without jacking it up on some stands) and if it has cracks in it, you need a new one. When you have a really bad vibration, usually there are chunks missing from it.
