Given there are fewer reports of the issue with 335s I can only guess the additional weight on the front offsets the induced harmonic resonance, whatever its source.
I don't own an F30 but I've driven 3. 2 of the 3 clearly had the problem and the last one (the only sport line I drove) clearly did not. I completely agree that it did not feel like a tire/wheel issue. It almost felt like an electric "buzz". "Harmonic resonance" is a perfect description.
