Differential making noise = Fluid Change

I just had my car into BMW for service because I was hearing a noise when I was making sharp turns at low speeds. It was almost like a rubbing noise.

I took a BMW tech out for a drive and of cousrse could barely make the noise with him in it. But he ended up figuring it out anyways.

Come to find out that the M Diff wasn't completely broken in (The car has 13k miles on it so I find that hard to believe). So they changed the differential fluid with a different kind and now the noise is no more. The dealership said that BMW has sent out a service bulletin on the matter.

Has anyone else ran into this with their M3s?
