major problem, drive shaft I think...

I think I have a big problem, it happened while I was arriving at the family Thanksgiving dinner, now I'm stuck in Temecula, CA, hoping I can find a shop out here that's opened and can help me.
My car suddenly started vibrating like crazy at high RPMs on the FWY, when I got off the FWY ans started using 2nd and 3rd gears it was getting worst with each mile. After a while it was vibrating even more at lower RPMs as well.
It feels like driving on huge bricks, the noise and feel is as if I were on those bumps that are on the side of the road warning you are outside of your lane, but extra large. I think it may be the drive shift, could it be? Drive shaft center bearing? Any thoughts?

I'm afraid to drive back to L.A., I need to find a shop in Temecula, any members in this area that could point me to the right place?
Thanks all.

push the BMW assist button and they will send a tow truck that will take your X5 to the nearest BMW dealer. They can also tell you where the nearest dealer is if you chose to drive there. If you have the nav system you can look up BMW dealers on that.

This didn't happen on my X5, I've been driving the 3 series lately, I love that car.
