I might add that I have seen many comments about the u-joints becoming too tight wiyth age, and therefore not rotating evenly. This condition apparently cannot be detected by rocking the drive shaft. I have been chasing the same vibration in a 1988 e-32 with 122k miles for a few months, and will find one of those hunter machines. I still suspect the tiresm and am afraid that a drive shaft rebuild could be fruitless.
