Bought mine in March with 46,000 km, just turned 66,000kms. Fitted all season tires and I will be driving it all winter, unless there's a major storm.

Beats me. It hasn't happened since the one time, so hopefully that's the end of it. Does make you a bit nervous though.

Sorry, It's a 2003 Z4 with 57,000 Kms (35,450 miles) on the clock. The noise was certainly there for a while. I had got out of the car and had almost walked out of the garage, came back, tried to...
