I have a loaner non-S F56 hardtop while my S is in the shop being fixed. Although it gets up and moves ok it has a nasty vibration. Any non-S owners out there experience this? I just want my S back haha.

Vibration when idling? I haven't noticed that on mine, but I guess the loaner has done more miles...

I did discover that driving over a cattle grid too quickly confuses the ABS :)

This loaner has about 1100 miles on it. I'm pleasantly surprised that it gets up and moves pretty good for itself. :) When at idle or just releasing the brake to start to go, it seems have a bit of a vibration, maybe it's just the loaner though. If you have a 6-speed manual it might be different as well, this one I'm using is an automatic.

Haven't noticed undue vibration on my Cooper, now at nearly 2000 miles. The three cylinder engine has a balancer shaft to prevent its inherent imbalance from being an issue.

I really like the sound of the three pot while accelerating, the off-beat thrum reminds me of other more powerful exotic cars.

I like the turbo noise on the 3 cylinder more than the 2.0 actually. It has a mini blow off valve type sound on the upshifts. You need the windows down to hear it though.
