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.
