In mine its rather squeaking - more when turning left at very low speeds. I think some element needs lubricating.

Just came from the workshop, changed brake pads.... miracously they noise is gone... even when I would never thought the noise had to do with the braking system...

Unhappy Is this list too long?

CTR in Championship White, due it's first service in just over a week:

Each morning when I pull away there's a squeaking noise from the back - dealer has checked and adjusted everything including head rests but no difference

Front seat belts are wearing the seats away no matter how much I adjust them - I've been told the seats are designed for a harness rather than a 3 point seatbelt

windscreen rattles

front windows rattle when only down an inch or so but stop when they're about halfway down

air vents rattle

Dealers answer to most of the above is turn the music up - not helpful!!!

I've seen posts for the windscreens and the vents but nothing for the squeak, front windows and the worn seats ...
