New M5 owner.... Fantastic Car.. with a few issues

Hello all.. just took delivery of a 2013 M5...

Love the car, a couple of small issues....

1. I have a small rattle in the forward left part of the dash.
2. Slight vibration above 90 mph
3. This is a design issue and has been reported by CNet, and that is a vibration or buzzing coming through the steering wheel. Nothing I can do on this one, but it can be a bit annoying.

Just wondering what other owners are experiencing in terms of issues with their cars.

Picking up one this summer, can't answer your question, but there is not much activity by M5 owners here. Checkout bimmerpost.com or m5board.com if you have not already, you will have a better response.

I had a vibration above 90mph too. Alignment did not fix it. Replacing a defective Michelin tire fixed the problem.

I think CNET is wrong. The steering wheel in my car does not vibrate unless it is related to the blind spot warning or lane departure warning. Ie there is no systematic vibration.

Thanks for the responses... I have an appointment on Wednesday .. So we will see what happens. I am hoping the vibration that I am feeling though the steering wheel is a tire issue but I don't think so. It feels like a motor that is running at a very high rpm is touching the steering column.... This is not like the vibration from ldw or blind spot....
