An intermittent ticking noise from the valve train may be noted at times. This concern is commonly caused by one or more faulty hydraulic valve lifters. Our technicians tell us updated valve lifters are available which should correct this concern.

A groaning type noise may be noted from the front suspension when driving over speed bumps or pot holes. Our technicians tell us that revised sway bar bushings are available which should correct this concern.

If the vehicle hits a pothole, distortion to the front shock towers can occur. The problem may be attributed to the run-flat tires. BMW has released a performance package upgrade for the front suspension, which includes a steel strut brace, steel strut mounts, and steel reinforcement plates for the top of the strut towers. This will help prevent damage to the frame.
There are reports of the rear sway bar brackets cracking while driving aggressively.
