Had my JCW R56 '10 nearly a month now and have had numerous issues.
One of the issues that the dealer can't seem to replicate/fix is an 'engine knocking' sound.. Usually more noticeable in 1st, 2nd & 3rd and it doesn't happen all the time.. but upon accelerating and de-accelerating, it sounds like the engine is knocking against something. Also in Sport mode it seems to happen more often as the car is more throttle responsive. (If I accelerate slowly, it doesn't happen)
Just to add the clutch & DMF have been replaced within the last couple of weeks due to the car juddering in 1st & reverse.
