My 91 750 is in th eshop checking on the oil leak (looks like hydraulic fluid but not sure) and steering wheel vibration on acceleration on speed about 55mph. Shop is called "Eurotech" here in MN ONLY dealing with Mercedes and BMW. Mechanic said usual suspect is driveshaft and wheel balancing issue for the vibration but not in my 750. He is doing a test drive and trying to find out. I will post what else can cause this symptom.
Oil leak is still under detect. Hydraulic fluid reservoir might be the cause pushing out the fluid but double check.

Well the verdict is, I had the tires balanced at the Frickig Tire's Plus couple of weeks ago and they did the tire balance on front but not rear. Furthermore, when they did the balancing, they totally screw up the allignment somehow. (I don't know how). I did stop by at the serviced Tires Frickin plus and showed them the result and they could not refund my money but offerred 10% discount on next tire purchase. (Like I would buy tires from them 120% MU).

The fluid leak was coming from the hose that connects hydraulic reservoir and regulator. I didn't understand that simple hose costs $290.00 parts and $100.00 to replace. I told him I am going to shop around.

My saga and journey of Thrusday.!!
