My service center did a full road force balance of all four wheels.

The technicians balanced the front wheels twice: once with tires off and one more with tires mounted. They say that initial balancing of the front wheels with tires on did not correct the problem.

I suspect there may be a minor manufacturing flaw in the BMW wheels causing this problem.

I do not think it is a steering mechanics problem. My 328i Sport was an early March build (Munich). I do not have variable sport steering.

I have ZERO steering wheel vibration now. The steering feels a bit tighter even in comfort mode. Drives straight like an arrow. You can't even see any minor steering wheel shake at 40 - 60 mph.

Bravo to my local BMW dealership for getting it right.

Now, only a skipping wiper to replace, and my car will be perfect!
