Just got my 2020 PP Performance Blue! It's currently at the shop for tint/clear bra, but I have one issue:

I noticed at higher RPMs near red line the car starts rattling/buzzing/vibrating.. doesn't seem normal. I still only have 100 miles on it. Is this because the car hasn't been "broken in" yet?

That doesn't sound normal, it revs pretty smoothly all the way to redline and break in shouldn't change that.

I had a similar problem with a car I used to have. I had a heck of a time hunting the buzz down (interior plastic panel) and shoving a little felt in back of the panel

I had the same weird sounds, but at lower rpm's. There are a few threads on this. But what fixed my strange rattle/vibration was disconnecting the Sound Generator.

Where is it coming from? Rearview mirror, eyeglass holder, steering wheel, etc? More than likely, if it's coming from the the interior it's the rearview mirror or eyeglass holder. These are common problems that can be rectified rather quickly.

I have this - it only happens in N mode though, which makes me think its the sound generator. It also started when it was super cold out for the first time, and seems to happen more during cold than warm temps.

I honestly haven't been hearing it anymore after the break-in period. I'll update if I hear it again.

This sounds like your sound generator. I assume you hear this at the front passenger side of the car at the windshield? If so, take a look at this thread.

My solution as well as many others since it's a common issue, unplug that thing.

I removed my sound generator yesterday since I believed it was responsible for annoying buzzing/vibration in the car which frequently occurs (but doesn't occur in normal mode).

The removal was very easy, and after removing it, I found that it was indeed the source of the problem. So I was pleased to remove it in that regard.


On the other hand, I was very surprised to find just how much the sound generator contributes not only to the volume of sound while driving in sport mode, but the quality and "fun factor" of the overall sound as well. Without the sound generator, the car is just slightly less fun than before.


Still, as others have mentioned, I am getting used to the difference quickly. I will evaluate the car for a week before deciding whether to keep the sound generator out permanently or not. But I probably will leave it out since the car still has a fine muffler sound and since the sound generator is, after all, fakery to begin with.

Sound generator, Rearview Mirror, Glass Holder, Turbo Heat Shield, take your pick or all four.

I had a vibration/buzzing sounds that got worse with engine RPM. I found that if I squeezed my rear view mirror, it went away. The dealer confirmed this and replaced the rear view mirror today under warranty. The sound is now gone.

That’s great to hear. Did you have to make an appointment ahead of time, or were you able to do a walk-in fix? Was it a quick fix?

They didn't have the part in stock, but I dropped it off the next day and they had it done in less than an hour.

Yeah, the tech took it for a drive and determined that something was loose inside so he just ordered a new one. They had it the next day and it took less than an hour to replace.
