Is the noise you have a rattle, or a buzzing vibration? Does it only happen when accelerating, or is it constant, regardless of speed? Does it only happen when going over bumps? (Etc, etc.)

Not really even a scratch. More like a slight distortion in the glass, but you had to look hard at the right angle to see it. The glass itself was smooth to the touch.

We're not talking about a subjective thing here, such as the color of the headlights, or quality of the stereo. There is a vibration. The dealer verified the vibration (so not just my opinion). BMW...

A Ford Fiesta can ride as smooth as glass, but not our $60K plus BMW. That vibration is "normal". You should consider yourself lucky that BMW didn't charge you extra for it! This utter BS is why my...

That's correct. The TPMS will not register on your 2014. If you want it to work you will have to change out the module in each wheel. The rims and tires will fit, no problem.

If you post in the correct forum, you may get more of a response. This forum is for the F10, not the E39.
