Hi all

Anyone else notice the centre speaker /cover ( the one sitting on top of the dash) buzzes at certain frequencies of music and more noticeable when taking voice calls via Bluetooth ?

I have the Harman Kardon system.

Also when the sun is out it seems too easy to see the small micro scratches on the speedo/rev Perspex cover....... Present in all cars but most are covered/recessed so font really notice.


Great car otherwise.... Really enjoying

My speedo perspex actually has a small crack in it I think next to the trip counter reset button... from there to the edge. I think of it as an "identifying feature" :)

My speaker buzzes too! And not just when playing music. From what I've sussed it's worse when the car's a bit cooler...once it warms up it seems to stop.

Mintmark.... That small 'crack' is present on all cars!!! Nothing to worry za out. I thought mine was cracked also when I first saw it.....:eek:

The only way to ignore the swirls in the sun is focus on the HUD I suppose.....:nerd:

Take it back & get it fixed PDQ !!

My H/K system gets a proper workout on every journey... if it buzzed at all I'd get it fixed.

Also, I had a R56 MINI delivered with fine scratches/swirls on the speedo - I made them change it under warranty... again, it's unacceptable!

I also have the rattling speaker - 2014 F56. I can hear it making "cracking" noises like cheap plastic when just driving around. Not something I've come to expect from new cars, and definitely not quality vehicles.

Is there a fix for this yet?

Took this to the dealership for service, covered under warranty. They "reinforced" the speaker. So far so good.
