I had that problem in my old 2012 535i, its a software issue, the dealer has to update the software to fix the problem. Your car is perfectly safe to drive on long trips.

We have a X3 35i with the same problem. For a car that is not consider a soft rider, it sure is susceptible to highway cross wind.

Having owned a pre-LCI and LCI with upgrade sound, I can tell you that they are not the same system. The pre-LCI has more punch to it when I crank it up.

The Macan cost about $20K to $30K more than the X3. I don't see how it can be an alternative to the X3. Also, the last time I check, there is no discount off the Macan.

In the 2013 model year, BMW did not use HK for their premium sound system. I think BMW went back to HK after the 2013 MY. Personally, I think the pre-HK premium audio sounds better.
