I'm not aware of many threads about any significant issues with the diff on the E9x. Can you post some examples?
A groan on low speed parking lot turns has been addressed by BMW with a special diff oil with anti-friction additives to coat the limited slip diff plates. What is the service history on the car?
Are you the original owner? When did the front end noise start? What kind of tires and how many miles are on them?
