in addition , like clockwork 2 days ago @ 7k miles i got the mysteriious engine whine fml...

also i wannna say the brakes suck assssss , they squeeek like crazzzzzzy , used to be reallly bad in reverse but lately they just constantly squeel and its not a regular squeel its a loud assss embarrasing high pitched hey everyone check out my 100k car squeeking lol

goes in to dealer tomo for these issues , weelll not gas obv thats a problem with my fooot but everything else , will update the post as they do what they do !

NEIL
LOL, its like i wrote it myself, going on my 3rd month with mine and the i am experiencing the exact same observations and problem with the brakes. embarrassingly LOUD in reverse every morning when i wake up the neighbors backing out, OLD people looking out there windows to see whats going on and my neighbor offering to help me do a brake job on a brand new vehicle made me laugh HARD and i look super cool in-front of coworkers with all the squeaks Add to that im lucky to get near 220/tank before filling up.

So it looks like your not the only one.

look at the bright side, it cant get much worse!

mine was just as bad, if not worse! the good news is that when i hit 10k it was like a switch flipped and my mpg went up a bunch. i was averaging just over 10 by the calculator and now im at 15-17 depending how i drive it. nothing changed in driving habits. same trips, same fuel, same everything but the mileage came up?

my dealer had new pads sent from Germany, they were somehow different but i dont remember how though. BMW is aware of the problem. the new pads fixed the problem on my old M (stopping both ways) ll get the part number/info the next time i go to the dealer. it will be soon,the 4.6 needs snow shoes

HAve you tried bedding in the brakes? Do 5 or so stops from 75-80mph down to almost a complete stop. Stay off the brakes for a bit to let them cool down. Repeat if necessary. Do it on an empty highway so you can get up to speed and slow down hard and then stay off them for a few miles.
