My 1500kms Run-In so far..

Just to share my thoughts during my 1500km journey, i've become addicted to the sheer driving pleasure in my M and so far i've encountered certain issues i want to share with every member:-

- Clutch Paddle 'Rattling'/'Clicking' noise along un-even roads
- Strange/Weird 'Clunking' noise coming from the front 'right' suspension (Not the usual 1st gear change Clunk) everytime turning right or 'cobblestone' type roads - more likely suspension noise / as if bush worn out etc etc
- Steering Wheel shaking around 120km/h.....even after all wheel been balanced/aligned

Other than that, i'm enjoying driving it and cant wait to run-it again to 2000kms and then from there will send it to the dealer to have her 1st service. Any thoughts and anyone shares the problem as i do, please chime in

Will update further once after fully serviced

Second and third issues may be related imo.

By the way, why don't you make the first service at 2000 kms. like it is suggested and done by most if not all of us?
