check stupid things (like inside rear seat moounts), and catastrophic things (rear subframe, rear sway bar mounts). since it is on one side, flex disc unlikely imho.

This is one of the difficult problems for BMW. I had my BMW5 repaired for many times, but the air conditioner system still got some problems.

This involves the physical resonance Bai principle. When the vibration frequency of two objects is the same, there will be resonance. At this time, the vibration frequency is the additive Dao, which is also the most severe vibration. When the vibration frequency of two objects is different, the frequency is reduced, and the vibration is not very obvious! It is applied to your car, that is, when your speed reaches a certain speed, the frequency of your transmission shaft and your tire is the same as the vibration frequency of the ground. At this time, resonance occurs and the vibration is added, so you will hear a particularly loud noise. When the car fails to reach or exceeds this speed, the resonance ends, the vibration frequency decreases and the noise occurs It will decrease! This phenomenon is also very common on washing machines. When the washing machine is dehydrated, the sound first becomes loud and then becomes smaller, which is also the principle!
BMW often have this kind of problem.Your left front wheel is out of alignment. It is recommended to do a four-wheel alignment test
