+1. Me too.

I think it comes as standard along with the water that pours onto the rear passenger seats when you open the rear doors when it's been raining.

Wow! I have that option too

I noticed it a while back, and then it stopped. Just yesterday I noticed it again. I just went to the carwash and moved the passenger seat. I'll move the seat this morning and see if it still happens.

Unless you feel like busting the dealers chops until they find something just play around with the seat position. I moved mine this morning and it no longer vibrates.

Are you guys noticing these vibration problems on both highway and local roads? I only noticed it between 60-65mph after changing tires/rims so I got them to rebalance it and it's still doing it, but only at 70-75mph now, but not everytime (but most of the time) at that speed - it seems to settle in and stop vibrating the longer I drive that session. Extremely weird. Could that even be a balance problem if it acts like that? Shouldn't it be constant and every time?

Some people on other boards are saying possible bad wheel bearing, bad tire, broken/shifting belt.

You better be careful, you're going to get a rude posting from a member on this Board, that does not tolerate "whining" or "complaining" and he is going to tell you to just sell the damned vehicle. According to some people (him especially), the E70 has NO faults!!!

I've only noticed it on local streets, they are doing some roadwork so the roadsurface isn't wonderful.
