He then checked tire pressures and informed me that the fronts had been inflated past recommended maximum, and this was the likely cause of vibration. He lowered all pressures to minimum. I remained dubious until I did my daily drive, which was much better. It's still not ideal, I may end up tinkering with things, but am much happier. Thanks to Ateam and others for your suggestions. The most irritating thing now is having to obey the speed limit.
Well, hopefully the ride won't be so bad now and the vibrations will stop. Good luck with the speed limit thing...I don't have that problem withe the autobahn

BTW, let's try to keep this thread on topic. It's about the performance relationship between 18 and 19 inch tires now...or whatever it is everyone is arguing about.
