Obvious things I would check,
Tyres balance condition and wear any splits or lumps in the side walls tread wear even side to side front to rear all inflated correctly.
Suspension and Driveshafts, nothing loose or allowing movement wheel bearings OK
Brakes, Any binding or sticking pads or calipers. After driving any heat felt at the wheel centre would indicate an issue
Propshaft, Centre bearings can wear
Other things that can cause vibration are Engine pulleys belts and tensioners
Hope this helps

A good alternator should maintain battery voltage between 13.9 and 14.8 volts (14.2 is optimum). Even worst-case, with all accessories turned on, there should be at least 13 volts at the battery. With BMW's I was shown by a BMW Tech to always test/measure at the charge/jump posts under the bonnet.
With my Mercedes with the engine off and after about half an hour the battery drain would begin, I measured a current present at the voltage regulator. I brought a new regulator and then while testing the old one on the bench found the failed diode (works like a one way valve)
A Voltage regulator is fairly simple to change and not as expensive as an alternator.
There are quite a few Auto Electricians who say if alternator voltage is below 13.7v change the alternator
Not easy to diagnose by remote control, so hope this helps
I use a black leather polish (like shoe polish) from Scratch Doctor, The side bolster was grey with wear so I tried using a leather dye but I have to say ended up taking the seat out so I could do the whole thing to ensure an even colour match I was happy with. Then did the other front seat as to me it didn't quite match 🤣
One of my sons said "you have OCD Dad" it looked OK and you don't have eyes in your bum !! 🤣
Hi Dave, just a quick one as I know you know your stuff 🙂 with the car we are trying to eliminate. So I just had my mechanic round to check the alternator and it’s testing at what it should be between 13-14. Even though it’s testing ok could it still be the alternator causing the problems I’m having? As we think it’s definitely something to do with something draining. Thanks
