Good news is the car was looked at by my local dealer today and the M diff needs replacing, it has excessive looseness on one side and is leaking fluid and will be replaced under warranty - thats the good news as the diff itself is priced at nearly $4K over here as a part.

The dealership has said unfortunately I have no chance of getting them to contribute towards the cost of replacing tyres

Anyone else had to have the M diff replaced under warranty?


Nice that you got it replaced under warranty. The tire was the canary in the coal mine in this case. Next time I hear of someone with wear on one rear tire, this will be a good example to remember. Thanks for sharing the conclusion to the story.
I have accepted a new position at Tire Rack and am no longer in the sales department. is available to assist with M3 questions.
