The thing is.... you can have vibrations in the steering wheel due to an improperly balanced wheel as well... or a tire with chunks missing.... how can you tell the difference if it's the wheel bearing?
Would this be covered under the BMW maintenance warranty?
How much do wheel bearings cost on this car?
