Unhappy E63 635D Wobble

Decided to post this as losing the will to live with my 2010 635D. I've had it about a 2 years and unfortunately I've had a problem on a wobble/shake on the car from day 1. Initially I thought it was a wheel balance problem.
It appears at a speed of about 60mph. I've had the car in with a few BMW specialists, as well as Joe Duffys BMW on the M50. None of them could diagnose what the issue was and suggested a number of changes which I had done
This included having the wheels balanced and aligned ( about 5 times now)changing the two front upper and lower control arms. I've had brand new tires put on all 4 wheels and recently I borrowed a smaller set of 6 series alloys and that actually seem the make the wobble worse. Joe Duffy suggested that a new steering rack was needed at a cost of 3,500, while someone else said it could be the gearbox.
The vibration can be felt in the front two seats and a small shake in the steering wheel. any thoughts or suggestions of where or who might be the best people might be to look at this would be really appreciated.

could be this as well, nr 2 in the pictures. Some said that brake discs are prone to bend.


By the way did you find out the cause ?
