What kind of wheels have you got on? I've an '84 BMW 316 with 106,000
miles on the clock and it suffers the same thing; it's down to the
aftermarket alloys that are fitted - the original steels cured it. A
friend had the same problem with a GTi, and again it was solved by
putting the steels on.
Getting a very very accurate balance helps, too.
