Hi

I just got my new X1 3 days ago (previously i had a 1 Series M Sport for 5 years). I have an issue that when in first gear the gear lever and the console seem to vibrate quite loudly, especially if your foot is on the clutch and other foot on the brake. (sorry if my explanation is quie 'basic' - i'm a woman who doesnt understand cars :p)

I've only done about 200 miles in the car so far... but its already irritating me! it doesnt do it in any other gear. Just does it in first.

Is this normal? I dont remember this happening on the 1 Series. And if this is happening when it's 3 days old, imagine what its going to be like in 1 years time.

Feedback/comments/advice would be greatly appreciated!

Regards
M

no.. just the gear lever. feels like the vibration is also on the front console as well. i know its supposed to vibrate... but not make such a noise. if i touch it slightly.. the noise/vibration reduces quite alot.

Sounds like a shift linkage problem, i would take it back and see what they say, not a great advert for a new car, Good luck:thumbsup:thumbsup
