Yes, I have the cooling and High-Performance tire package, but I don't think it has anything to do with that. It's near impossible to stop smoothly and silently, especially when I have Auto H, and the Auto engine on/off activated in traffic. Right before I come to a complete stop, the brakes grab too early, and then the engine cuts off, which makes the car stop abruptly and causes the suspension to titer forward and back and when I come out of a stop, the brake doesn't release early enough, and I get nasty rubbing/clunking noise.
It's still happening, and the dealer continues to say its normal, and are too cheap to inspect it.

The worst part is I am a musician and part-time audio engineer and the sound bugs the crap out of me every time. At some point, I will record the issue with some pro mics and share the issue with you all. I'm sure this is a problem only I am facing, the M340i is an excellent car, but just the one I have has some lemon brakes or something. I am already looking forward to exchanging it when the new M3 comes out. I'm sure it won't have the same issues.
