I don't know about the 3 series but every F10 M5 that has been here has had clonking from the rear and all have been fixed 100% by our springs, even the ones where BMW had already "fixed" them.

So, 120 mile drive to the office this morning. There is no knocking going on that I can sense. The car is so much smoother it is amazing!

I've only had the car 6 weeks and it's already spent 13 days at the dealer. I'm heading down there tomorrow to do a road test with the tech on board. Let's see how I get on.

I also have the same problem on my 2012 M Sport. Williams BMW Liverpool (who I must say have been excellent in dealing with this issue) have changed the top mount twice, the steering rack and the suspension struts - however the noise is exactly the same. They have now sent another PUMA directly to BMW, and we are now waiting further instructions from them as to the next course of action. The tech who is very knowledgeable is dumbfounded as to what this could be. It really spoils the whole ownership experience for me.

Mine does the same. Only seems to happen in comfort mode, sport is fine. First time it happened over a speed bump in comfort I thought I'd smacked the underside of the car on the bump - then I discovered this thread!

Hi Again BM driver,
At the present time I've given up on trying to get this clunk fixed.
In the recent weeks it's definitely getting worse.
Please let me know what the result of that Puma is.
Thanks

No problem, I will report on the outcome when/if BMW give further instructions. I do feel though that the warm weather definitely makes it worse.

I believe BMW resolved or significantly improved the DHP "hollow" noises as part of their running production changes. In checking Realoem there's been plenty of suspension part changes that seem to have begun in 11/2012. That said I had a late 2012 build MY13 F30 w/DHP that was quite noisy. Now have a MY14 and DHP is much quieter in this car. Compared to the passive suspension there's still some noise in Comfort mode, but not annoyingly so (where the MY13 was annoying).

Poke around realoem and you'll see what I'm talking about. Select a build newer than yours and you'll see the newer parts. And some have been changed 3-4 times such as the front axle support.

The question is can you get your dealer to install newer parts in your car? Probably not unless BMW ENDS life of the part currently used in your build.
