E92 wheel bearings

A few weeks ago i started hearing a whining noise; the pitch was speed related and not tied to engine RPM. I had relatively new tires (Pirelli P Zero Nero all season w/6K miles) and dealer attributed to uneven wear. Tire folks pulled the wheels and found very little scallop on inside of fronts, but thought noise was from rear. Went back to dealer who on more thorough look said it was wheel bearings; now scheduled for replacement on thursday. Thought it strange to have this w/only 23K miles, but at least the dealer was apologetic.

so let me get this straight... you got the run around at the dealer... ran back over to the tire place... then ran back to the dealer.

/dealer too busy to be bothered
gave you a BS story and blew you off... when you returned with adequate proof... resolved the situation.

normally i'll let crappy service slide (if it wasnt deliberate) but this is just lack of concern = doesnt want to do his job.

perhaps he should go back to being a salesman ?

Hey I have the same problem!! I have this noise and vibration when I drive 30 - 35 Km/h

Dealer told me that it is because I have uneven tire wear due to improper tire pressure, But I know the pressure was correct because I always check it and the tires seems fine!


So what should I do now, go back to the dealer and argue with them?
