    I have recently purchased a B8 Quattro 2Ltr that's 3 and a bit years old. There was a lot of vibration when I first purchased the car and dealer fixed most of it by balancing wheels. There's still an irritating/annoying/unacceptable amount at speed. The dealer has now suggested that the wheel vibration is what he would consider to be a "characteristic of the car". Really! I am told the wheels have been "road force balanced" and are spot on. Therefore, end of story from dealers perspective.

    Wheels are 245/40/R18 93Y Pirelli Cinturato p7's. Virtually/are new tyres.

    Any views or ideas on the way forward - suggestion to go back to the garage with?

    Engine fixing plastics might be broken. That vibration might come from engine since the vibration suppression cannot be performed by those plastics .
    Recently I have experienced a vibration problem mostly at steering wheel, it has just been fixed which is due to the old tyres having wear on the base completely. I don't think your problem's cause is tyres.

    If you also experience a slight clunk at slow speeds along with vibration at higher range of speed then it may very well be failing engine mounts.

    Try swapping your wheels front to back. You could have a damaged alloy or tyre.

    I doubt the dealer would have one/ no how to use one, but a NVH (noise/vibration/harshness) sensor and hooked up to a scope would pin point the vibration. Its not just wheels that can cause a vibration.

    Following with interest.....My 63 plate 2ltr A4 has had a vibration on the motorway for a while now, although seems to come and go, lasting for a few weeks on and off.

    Mine is purely through the footwell and pedals, had in to a garage to be looked at once, of course it was at a point where it had stopped doing it!

    The vibration/rumble comes and goes. Would a NVH help in that case? Can you rig it up and drive at speed? Who has a NVH/where do I find a company that has it in the UK?

    Before the garage did all the wheel balancing the vibration was constant and I never went above a certain speed. Now I can go at all speeds but the vibration/rumble, which is no where near as bad as before, is still present and doesn't appear constant. I travel on motorways daily (same piece so I know the road and surface) and put the car in cruise control at various speeds to find the speed that encourages it the most and just wait. The vibration/rumble will come and go. I now feel the wheel balancing may have been one issue and now gone it has exposed another. Another piece of information is that the differential was replaced at the same time as the balancing sorted as I had a noise from the rear area - that noise from the differential has now gone.

    I have this. It was bad a few weeks ago due to warped discs. They have been skimmed but not enough so it now only does it between 70mph and 80mph.

    If its worse when u brake then it could be discs.

    Do you do anything to encourage the clunk or does it just happen?
