    Im getting a vibration through the accelerator peddle at around 60mph onwardsto about 80mph (not sped up to higher to see if it continues) and my girlfriend says she can also feel it slightly through the passenger side floor and hear it, it isnt a continuous vibrate its pulses on and off continuosly though. What could it be? It doesnt vibrate when doing normal road drives.

    Tyre, wheel, bearing, driveshaft, bushes, could try moving the wheels around & see if it moves at all, but requires inspecting of course.

    As said could be a multitude of factors, the only way to diagnose is to check turn by turn. So, tyre pressure, tyre condition, tyre balancing (may or may not be related to wheel bent/buckled) and then visual inspection of bushes, suspension arms etc if still nothing then further investigation and I can't tell you what cos thats where my mechanical knowledge stops lol, wheel bearings also worth checking.
