5thseries,

once you change tires to a good summer soft compund tire the noise will go away and your car will def feel 10x better, the clicking in between gears is related to Front Engine Rear Wheel drive and that will never change..However, at the light.. put the car in 2nd and then 1st, that usually happens if you stop in the 3rd, 5th gear, so whenever you do so, just go thru the lower gears while your stopped, it will slip right into 1st, and the rpms, thats just cold start related nothin you have to worry about.

As everyone else mentioned above, the runflats suck.

I found a new love for my car (not that i didn't love her already) when I swapped my completely-bald-at-16,000kms-runflats to a set of Kumho SPTs.

The car is quiet and feels a thousand times better... going over a bump doesn't sound like I'm breaking my car anymore and it handles significantly better as well... I find the craptacular compound on the runflats are unpredictable, especially at high speeds.

Just make sure you have a repair kit in your trunk. My mechanic recommended having the Canadian Tire SLIME Green goop which comes w/ an air compressor, valve removal, repair kit, etc....

Worked like a charm in the 3 weeks before I was able to get my rear-right tire repaired due to a a very small hole caused by a staple....

My wife's 2007 328i runs like a dream, and it also had the runflats when we bought it.. I recently bought some slightly used wheels and tires from an ad here (advertsied as Michelin Pilot Sport 2) and even though the seller said they were not run flats, I think they are as they have a "ZP" on them. They are very quiet and handle quite well. (good enough for my wife who just uses that car to do to work and back)

It sounds like the car discussed here has some other problems with it, besides possibly the run flats.
