I have now gotten rid of it. Most disappointing experience and treatment in all of my BMW ownership. I've owned 10 BMW's - 6 were M's... This will be my last one.

Agree regarding Merc's... Wife has driven Audi's for years and haven't had issues. I have a Porsche as a play car and always had great service here in the US.

I'm back to daily driving a Ford Raptor.

Hi its the exhaust problem.
The middlepart under the armrest is bouncing to floor if you drive over horizontal inequality of street - when both of the rear wheels "jumps over".

Most common :
20kmh speed bump
40-45kmh horizontal inequality
Over 70kmh highway (also horizontal in.)

They told me that they are about to fix it until tomorrow. So I am curious what the solution would be and I will update it here. And I will also ask them how its possible if some part is missing or what..

UPDATE

I have recieved my car back today.

- software updated - recall

- new laserlight installed

- the noise - they said its because of exhaust bounces to suspenssion so they demoted exhaust and changed palcement of the isolation on suspension - they said that they made +0,5cm space Between the suspension and the exhaust and it did not do it anymore during test drive
-> well during 30min drive to home I definitely HEARED and FELT on my elbow that the problem is still here.
Maybe its a bit better(or its just placebo) but its still there. I have to test it during weekend but I am afraid its going to be another visit(s) and I am not sure if I have time and mood to do it now :-/
I am planning to install akrapovic in febuary so maybe I would kindly ask them to make it better with their features.
OR I will solve it with them again but I am afraid of milion visits and experiments.
Will let you know about my proper tests - if its at least better or not.

Its dark and my car is dirty but I hope everything is fine with no scratches etc.
