I'm in the same boat. Not sure what to do about this. I don't think it makes sense to have to replace the springs on a new car. Also, the dealership technicians who will have to do the replacement have no experience with doing this job on this car. I'm really tempted to let them sell the car I ordered to someone else, and I will place another order when BMW finally starts installing the proper springs in new production cars (December?) I think I'd rather wait a few more months than deal with the repercussions of having defective springs.
The problem is not really that serious honestly. I won't even call it a defect. Apart from going over bumps, you won't notice it in normal driving. If u go over speed bumps slowly, u don't even notice it. Of course they should fix it, but don't let that spoil your fun. I don't even remember this issue anymore until i read this thread again.
