  • Commonly reported morning start up sound (I happen to love this sound)
  • Groaning / grinding sound from differential when car has been sitting for awhile (overnight)
  • Brakes groan and creak for about first 30 minutes
  • When you rock the car back and forth - especially with parking brake engaged - the entire rig groans and creaks just like my grandma's old iron bed
Great car; puts a smile on my face but is it one of the noisiest cars I have every owned.

Going to have all the above checked at an upcoming service but I am sure I will get the "it's normal for a M" explanation.
