Wow, it'* true what they say--the machine is only good as the man using it. Took the car into my local Pontiac/Mercedes dealer today where I've had good luck in the past (they were closed on Saturday or I would have gone there first). The fronts are smooth as glass now and the rears are better. They checked the rear alingment and the right-rear was off a bit (which explains why the old tire has a funny wear pattern). Vibration is still there in the rear but quite a bit better now. They said the two rear tires are out-of-round a bit. I have a feeling they may just be telling me this because they couldn't completely get it smooth back there (they road-tested it). In there defense, they may be right, as they have two massive weights on the left-rear.
I called Tirerack and to my surprise, they are sending me two replacements, no questions asked. We'll see how the new ones do.
Thought I would give an upadate as I know there are a lot of 2000+'* who are dealing with vibrations.
