Anyway, The CA was in the car with me for a little maiden voyage spin (at her recommendation), and wouldn't you know it, as we pulled away sharply from the curb - the grinding sound you've all been describing coupled with a small vibration occured.

It happend once again on that initial drive, though honestly, I have not heard it or any abnormal sound or feeling since. Luckily for me (us) the CA was in the car with me and clearly heard the noise and felt the vibrations as well. She notified both BMW and the Service department at the dealership. She also called me this morning to check in, but as I mentioned, nothing to report.

Will keep you all posted.

Just curious - what dealership? And where are the pics? Let's see the rear end. Haven't seen much of that exhaust on the 550 M sport.

Good luck w the car!!!
