The day I pick up the car after its already sold and am driving to deliver it to the new owner, the car drives amazing! The bushings were the culprit the whole time. Big, well known issue with the E39.

I wonder if it could have anything to do with them on your M3. Good luck, I know how incredibly annoying having brake vibrations is.

That's interesting, I wonder if E92 M3's have had any issues with thrust bushings? I had my front end checked out several times and everything seemed nice new and tight from what the tech told me. What kind of visual or hands-on inspections can be done to check them ourselves?
