Question "suspension" noise at low speeds

I have been hearing a "crunching" noise at low speeds on my 17 F54. Brought it into the dealer and was diagnosed with control arm issues. Replaced under warranty. Noises are still there, Car went back in for service (oil change) now they hear it, but have no idea where it is coming from other than saying that it might have something to do with my non runflats. I seriously doubt it. Anybody have an idea?

I had the same thing on my wife’s car last year and the did the same thing, changed changed struts, control arms, picked it up and was still there, took them to actually listen to me and change the upper mounts.... bing sound went away, but now sound is back and no more Warrenty. I had a Hell if a time with the one of the Mini dealer here, took them 2 weeks to get it right and numerous 2 1/2 hour drives to the dealer!

I don't know about the labor portion, but MINI parts are guaranteed for two years unlimited miles. So you can go back to them.

Not worth the drive, I will just fix it myself once I get around to it
