Steering Vibrations

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Decided to drive to work this morning and the steering vibration is driving me crazy.. Hands were almost numb when I got to work.. Anyone ever found a fix for these? Does the 2014 also have these vibrations?

What, 2012 car and the steering wheel is still vibrating? Mine stopped vibrating after the first 3 months or so.

My car had the same. I found that it was road specific. Must be a certain vibration freq??? Since I have had new springs ( Dinan) installed the vibrations have disappeared.

Yup, same issue here. It's annoying after a 2.5 hour drive. I noticed a difference when changing to Pirelli PZeros -- much less vibration as they are a softer tire than the PSS.

Maybe you need new wheels/tires
I have 12K on the clock and no vibration at all.
Check different steering setting...
