I brought it in once before and the dealer wasn't able to find any problem.
Last week, I had the service advisor walk by the side of my car as I slowly made figure 8's. Sure enough they heard the clicking sound coming from the front wheels and reported back later that day that they replaced both front rotors. I'm not sure what exactly was the problem, but the service report said something about the "rivets on the rotors causing noise". Wow, I can only imagine that there may have been some serious metal-to-metal contact all this time!

Has anyone else noticed this?
Yes, I have noticed the same issue on my 2012 Z4 35i. I'll raise the same issue with my dealership and see what the response is that they provide!
