Show me a full size convertible that doesn't shake when going over bumps. A convertible does not have the rigidity of a sedan/hatchback. My wife has a 99 9-3 and it does the same thing. Changing the suspension bushings to urethane and adding a steering rack clamp is supposed to tighten things up considerably. I don't like driving her car. I'd rather drive my 96 9000 CS with a full turbo, not LPT.
