hi Skime219, well one of the GT's went in for what I thought was a cracked speaker, turned out to be the amplifier (replaced at 2700 miles!)
and as for the bigger issues we've been talking about...yes there is no solution...I was informed by Service, in a low voice, that there is no solution, and it's inherent in the engine***** disappointing. Today after I drove the car 15 minutes then parked it for 4 hurs, at restart it really went up and down in RPMs for about 20 seconds or so. It's really unsettling isnt it? Your sitting there afraid to put the car in gear watching the engine behave in an uncontrolled manner. I've had BMWs since 1989 and will probably stay loyal as I love the GT (otherwise) but this a very strange and confidence-damaging situation...I guess we have to live with it (at least at 0.9% for 48 months!)
