oil service performed
diff fluid changed
spark plugs changed
brake fluid service
heating and A/C microfilter replaced

Transmission confirmed: normal and in good condition

Idle: Confirmed no issue at this time

Steering: This is a possible issue. The tech confirmed the sound and inspected the steering rack. They suspect that something is binding the rack at low speed. BMW will be getting involved to see what repairs are needed. Mostly likley new rack headed my way.

I did not want to leave my car there until wednesday, so i took it back. All in all, I am very happy with the condition of my 2008. It is one of the earliest built and I was worried that would mean lots of problems. I have put over 12,000 miles on in the last 7 months and usually drive with plenty of throttle. It is holding up amazingly well. The car is awesome. I'm glad to know my MT is normal and I can enjoy the car like it's meant to be. Just gotta get this steering issue out of the way and some new PSS 255/35/19 for the front and I'm GTG.
