Took the car on it's first long run (since I've had it) and noticed slight vibration through front seats @ around 70mph 'ish , not really felt through steering wheel as such, so wondering if it's rear wheel balance issues or is it normal due to firmer suspension etc (compared to my old omega)

hi pete

welcome to FOC

It certainly sounds like the rear wheels are out of balanced or one is buckled. this always happens at about 60-70 and again at a higher speed.

You may also want to have it checked on the wheel tracking. Best use a big company with a good system (dont bother with cheap small places as they are always incorrect) have that checked as it could also cause a vibration.
