RE: quattro - drive vibration ?

First to check are CV joints. Bear in mind that even if you can't feel a
free play at them there still may be a problem with them. On my 5K one
CV joint actually _cracked_, so one ball has fallen out. The four
remaining ball races were in very good condition though, so there was no
free play at the joint at all. Also small tire imbalancies, that usually
cannot be felt may become excessive if your suspension bushes are in bad
