Do you have a visible puncture or nail in the tire? Reason I ask is I was having a slow leak (1-2 psi/week) and the service dept. found it was the TPMS valve not tightened down completely.

Our 2016 428iGC doesn't either - not sure what BMW tweaked but it definitely sounds much better from the outside. Inside the cabin has never been a problem with both the F30 and F36.

Our new 428i GC is quieter and less diesel clacky sounding than our previous 2013 F30 - BMW might have done some tweaking with the turbo units :dunno: plus extra soundproof padding.
