    I'm noticing on my Touring that there's a spring-like vibration noise coming from the metal exhaust heat shield when I'm driving (I hear it from the passenger floor area) or sometimes when I close the passenger rear door or the trunk. I looked under the body and found that by touching the edge of the exhaust heat shield it causes the sound but otherwise it feels firmly attached. On some days, I don't hear the noise which leads me to think it's temperature related. Anyone else noticing this issue?

    I have the same issue! So you've narrowed it down to the heat shield? I will let my dealer know the next time I'm in to inspect it and I'll let you know!

    Thanks and please do! I had my dealer look at it but they weren't able to replicate the noise. I've only had my car for about a month so I'll bring it up again when I take it in for its first oil change.
