    Hi, it's great to be a member of BMWCCA again after years of absence. My wife and I just purchased a 2011 528i (mine) and a 2012 X3 (hers) after 25 years of BMW driving. I started with a '76 2002, then a '86 535is, then '95 325is, '94 325i, 2002 X5, and now the two new ones. I've driven the MB, but found the car too soft after my years with Bimmers. I do have a question for anyone who may have encountered this. My new 528i occasionally (once a month) emits a very quiet high frequency squeal. I was able to capture it on my iPhone so the dealer would not think I was crazy. After a week at the dealer, they could not repeat the problem. Anyone out there had this happen? The squeal only lasts about 15 seconds and is not coming from the audio system. Any help would be appreciated.

    Hmm! Welcome (back) to the asylum! Perhaps somebody on the model-specific forums might hacve a clue about your high-pitched squeal? (There have been such in my cars on occasion, but they came from the passengers!)
