This is on a new to me 2013 535i xdrive GT with 26k miles.... I've got a few questions regarding low speed ride quality. It seems like over small tar strips - expansion joints, I'm getting a clomp, noise from the front end that is not on the back end. It has new LS2 runflats which are known to suck. Is this clomping noise over small bumps at low speed a normal tendancy of the suspension on the GT or is the front end known for bushing failures that would cause this noise? I'm thinking it may just be the LS2s with its stiff sidewall, sucky design. Has anyone eliminated low speed noise over bumps with tire replacement? I've got 19s - 245/45. Was thinking of switching to Pirelli P7 non RFT (softer). Any opinions appreciated.

I would test the suspension by going over some speed bumps. We have not experienced what you describe.
