I used to work across the street from the dealership and the car had numerous visits there, still when the lease came to the end the noise was still present. When it was humid outside there was a concert of noises coming from everywhere inside the car. I don't have the time to list all the issues I had. Since then I leased 3 e9x, two fitted with the infamous N54. I didn't have any problem with any of them.
