N54 - slighty noisy clutch release bearing

Is it worth sorting out or is it a case of 'they all do that sir' like the 130i N52I used to have...

Now would BMW entertain a full strip and rebuild within the original warranty (car is 31 months old)...

At that mileage I'd be pushing very hard.

With over say 60k I suspect they would begin to argue wear and tear...

Had BMW take a look at this today, no issue just a characteristic. As I said it is a very slight noise and nowhere near as bad as my 130i was at the same mileage. Important thing is it has been registered on file in case it suddenly gets worse.
