Take it to BMW. It's a known issue, and they just have to adjust the latch assembly. Mine had the same issue, but no more:) Rattles have been known to put me on meds:mad:

LOL..I hear ya ard. But I have a platinum warranty that pretty much covers everything except for maint. and normal wear of course, and the dealer already has experience in dealing with them:)

Water Leak

Had a lot of rain yesterday. Water was coming out of the light / sunroof assembly, and into the cup holder below. Any ideas? Sunroof seemed to be closed as usual. Never had a leak issue.

Nitto nt421q Replacements

At 23,000 I finally replaced my unbearable Dueler run flat's. The road noise got to be a little too much for me. They couldn't be rotated as the wear was, to say the least, very uneven..no surprise....

You're not alone. I have the same issue, with either fob. For some reason, you need to be quite close for a BMW remote to work. Closer that any other car I've owned..go figure. Frustrating, but still...

Yikes! $4,500 for 75,000/4 years! Sounds high to me. Through my credit union, I payed $2,000 for an additional 4 years/60,000. Platinum coverage, virtually covering bumper to bumper, minus of course...

What your hearing is more than likely the fan for the rear climate control. When the rear fan is being used, it reduces the power to the front..big time. FYI, it's real easy to bump the rear controls.

Easy to replace, standard install. No thru the fender, at least for the halo bulb. I haven't had to replace the others. I picked mine up at O'Reilly's.

Let us know how it went. One of mine has a crack and needs replacing. The dealer said it can be tricky, and I'd have to agree, as the one is cracked and the other is warped, and now glued.

It's a straight forward bulb replacement, right thru the engine compartment. Small hands help, and don't forget to put the cap back on! It's a little more expensive than the bulb:rolleyes:

PAX5 is right. Very common issues that I've seen on just about every BMW. You can get both replaced, but get ready for it to happen again. I bought my 08 a little over a year ago, with about 12,000mi...

FYI, at least in my case, the trim that popped out was perfect. Just the integrated bumper clips were "shaved" off with the impact.
