Don't know if it's any help but on the underside of the car are some fibre boards that flap like a flag in the wind well at least when you lift and release them. This video highlights their looseness: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7nq6ZyAYqyM
Could it be that under certain circumstances they vibrate? Can't say I have heard anyone else mention vibration but when nothing is obvious you'll look into just about any possibility!

Personally I would be more inclined to think a wheel is at fault and that would be my first focus. Alternatively could it be a suspension damper or component fault?

Are you sure yours is RWD (rear wheel drive), they should be AWD (all wheel drive), at least here in the UK it is. :?

I have the same version and mine does not have it, unless i am on certain roads here and the ripples in the tarmac can give that impression, moving lanes to a different surface the sound and 'vibes' disappear, showing in my case its nothing on the car, just the road surface, and i cannot fix that.

Good Morning All

Just an update to this issue.. Some good news , the fault has been resolved. No Vibrations , super smooth drive as to what expected from a Jagr ;-)

The issue was narrowed down what to an incorrectly installed rear tyre ( Yes rear wheels :shock: ) . Rear tyres were removed and fitted again. Problem solved..

From my guess, a Hunter Road force balancer would have also picked this up..

After 1.5 months finally issue resolved ;-)

Good news and glad it's sorted.
:D
Was it badly balanced or did they have it on the wrong way round ?
