    I recently noticed a very faint hot metal smell at speed, say over 90mph - on private roads, naturally ... :crazy:

    Is it ball bearings? - I had OSF replaced a few month ago.

    I also think it is when the S mode is selected, although I haven't driven in C mode for a while, other than in town / slow traffic ...
