At first the NVH from the shifter didn't really bother me, but recently due to the pandemic, we gave my wife's parents our family mobile (Audi Q7) to drive to Texas (long story) and we have been driving my car a lot. I usually drive with the windows open and music blasting, so I never really thought that the NVH from the shifter was annoying, but with my wife and kids in the car and the windows closed, ITS ANNOYING. Add that with some stuff suspension, camber plates and noisy tires, I kinda want a new car now. haha

I need to take it back to my installer to see what this annoying buzzing/rattling sound is. There is a hum/whine which is normal, but I don't think the buzzing/rattling is, although the car performs exceptionally.
Mine is sitting in a box and I haven't installed it.

Ever since having a kid I've only been driving the M3 by myself, which is all fine and dandy. We took it out with the kid the other day and all the noise that doesn't bother me all of a sudden are really loud.

Maybe cause I've been autoxing the shit out of the car stock and the tires are very worn now, but the tire hum was excessive on the highway. Compound that with I guess roads that are just of a lower quality, NVH that seemed completely fine when we did 160km/h in Germany seem unbearable at 100km/h in Canada.
