Hello F33 peers.

Over the past week I have begun to experience this sound
View post on imgur.com
Car has less than 5000 miles. It appears to be noticeable when driving quieter roads. It happens when letting the foot off the accelerator and the car natural gets to anywhere from 20-29 MPH. Though I have also experienced it upon slow acceleration. It can be heard with the top down or top up windows down and appears to come from the passenger side of the car. The sound is normally just a second and might even repeat itself. Rain appears to lubricate the part and mitigate the sound.

Curious if others can see if they experience this?

Dealer appears to believe it's the exhaust flap.

The only thing I hear is someone appears to be saying check or something.

It appears Imgur has compressed the video further and it sounds nothing like what I uploaded. The sound is similar to metal scratching itself. I'll try to find another video hosting provider.

I am blocked from imgur at work, but I know some of the most talented BMW Master techs in NJ and great Service Advisors. Hit me up and let me know where you live and maybe I can put you in touch with them if you're in the Central NJ area

What do your windows look like at the corner of the A pillar when the top is folded? Mine was replaced recently, the technician didn't fit the glass all the way into the channel because "too much pressure is not good". The passenger side is fully in the channel though.

f33 convertible stopped in while closing

While closing the top last night it completely stopped in mid function and it wouldn't go up or down. Just completely dead. Not sure if this had anything to do with it but it happened just as the passenger opened her door and my bluetooth phone started ringing. I drove it back to my garage and tried to find a fuse associated with the problem. Couldn't find the fuse diagram. Frustrated, I was going to sleep on it but then tried it one last time and it worked like nothing happened. Any ideas?

I opened my door once while lowering the top. It immediately stopped. I closed the door, pushed the top down button again, all was well.

Was there a message on the screen? Mine acts up occasionally. Iíve narrowed it down to when it has been open for several days. Solved it by putting it up every night. So far.

When the top is down, I see some strings in the top mechanism and they are under high tension. Any idea what's the life for those before they fray or break off?

I have a 2016 435i xdrive convertible, but it has the luxury package. Don't want to ruin the look, but want to add some sport. Thinking:
Cf rear spoiler
Cf side view mirrors
Gloss black grill
Wrap the chrome strip on back bumper

Anyone have pictures of a similar model/mods? Alpine white is her color

I would leave it as is, completely stock.
