This is quite unbelievable. I had to returned a 2012 service loaner with less than 5,000 miles that I purchased because it was giving off a grinding noise at 15 mph that the dearlership could not fix. After numereous back and forth and headache the dealer finally gave me a 2013 as a replacement. Now the 2013 car is giving me problems too. BMW's quality has definitely gone down hill. I had a 2000 323i for eleven years and never experience the problems like these. Just unbelievable.
Most likely the metals contracting as they cool, along with oil dripping back into the sump. Comparing this to a loaner/beater is ridiculous.
