    I bought mine from Quill so I went back to them to have it fixed. As for the SA...he's no longer there.

    Hi. My wife's 2014 F30 316i suffers too from this intermittent "kluck, kluck, kluck" sound, which appears to be coming from the front driver's side absorber or steering rack. The thing is that this only occurs occasionally, possibly when engine is hot because after I stop the engine for a few hours or overnight, the sound disappears.
    Auto Ingress Damansara still cannot solve.
    Does anyone have any advice on this matter?
    Thanks

    Not sure if this thread is relevant to F30 because TLDR.

    There seems to be a mention of an advisory software/coding update which fixes the occasional klunking/knocking noise when going over bad roads. Apparently, this update is an advisory update. Meaning, it is not a patch they apply to all cars that go in...and I wonder why.
    What are your thoughts on this and is this solution used in our local BMW SC? Applicable only to cars equipped with adaptive drive modes (eco/comfort/sport). Has anyone gone down this route? Is it even real?
