Thanks for posting this. One week in and Id broadly agree with this assessment. It is interesting they mention the high-frequency vibrations transfer easily into the cabin I have also noticed this on slightly rough surfaced roads. Annoyingly this means anything loose in the cabin (e.g. stuff in the side-pockets) has a tendency to rattle.

This and the poor noise insulation (I do have the sunroof which may explain some of this?) and wind noise at speed are two negative points on what is overall an awesome car. It's just a shame the damn meddling EU and their stupid rules mean we don't get the proper noisy exhausts like our US brothers do!

There are a couple of mistakes in the article: the UK price quoted is RRP not OTR, the CO2 is wrong (official UK figure is 239g/km) and it mentions "the latest version of BMWs iDrive infotainment" but as I understand it, the X3M has iDrive 6.0 so not the latest (7.0).
