the right rear is the break pad warning senser. This happens when your pad has movement in your caliper. I heard that there is a new wear sensor you can buy. As for the front sounds like it has upgraded roll bar bushes. You can go get more stock ones and put them in and it will stop.

BMWs are not for everyone so it is probably a good idea you go back to Lexus. I have owned a few and frankly I never owned one that had any sole but if you view a car as a toaster that is a good choice and for what it is worth my Toy-Lexus was no better than any other car I have owned...

Welcome.

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?

Ok, one at a time.

The front tires are at 80% at 3x,000 miles?

They may be cupped. Even with plenty of tread, BMW camber settings generate wear, and sometimes exhibit 'tire roar' at certain speeds. My E46 had this problem. Replacing the tires will address this problem.

Don't understand the comment on the diff. What are you taking it on for?

Oh boy... my head hurts by looking at his posts. If he can't properly communicate his issues, I am not surprised he is having all these problem/issues.

I am not trying to be condescending, but my friend's 5 year old daughter could write better articulated sentences.

I hope you're not a troll. I cannot understand anything you've written thus far.
