Brand new M140i horrible noise when put into drive

Post by Elneilio » Wed Jul 11, 2018 9:30 am

I’m brand new to the site so sorry if I’m putting my issue in the wrong place guys.
The car is a brand new automatic and the issue I’m having is when I put the box in gear either drive or reverse then I take my foot off the break it makes a horrible load mechanical noise as it’s put into gear. It goes as soon as I drive away and I have no issues when driving.
1. Is it normal for a brand new automatic car
2. Will it go over time
3. Should I inform the dealer

Thanks for any help, looking forward to any comments
Neil

There is a very quiet mechanical/electrical noise when you put it in D or R as that is the gearbox being told what to do

If you pull off really slowly on the brakes then you will get some noise as you are pulling the car against them - sounds a bit weird but all autos do it

If it’s making noise if you just lift off and go then there could be something not quite right

Ok I’m gonna take it back for them to look at it, its a loud noise as the gearbox is engaged too loud, thanks for the replies.

The white Merc was there yeh

But the grey Skoda that came last year didn’t come.

So the only non BMW was the C63 which was the car with all the food supplies in

And the grey Skoda wasn’t on the stand last year it was on the parking area down by the main gates so you are both wrong.

Lol feel what you want to feel, believe me or not, I don't really care. For the record, I walked past the stand 4 or so times throughout the day (as it was on the way back to the slush machine) I didn't see anyone on your stand, be it sitting in their cars or walking around, I walked past throughout the day and both cars mentioned were there.

By the way, it's you're* and there*.
