The only "balance" that matters is a grenading wheel bearing can cause fatal damage and there are enough of them right here to be a major issue. BMW had better be working on this one big time...before someone owns a major portion of their revinue (read; makes a big dent in their liability insurance and reputation).
Just a reminder to all; this will NEVER happen unless the NHTSA is properly and objectively notified. No hearsay, agenda, or embellishment. Get the facts in so everyone will benefit from a proper resolution.
