    Picked up my TM3 RWD last weekend. One thing I've noticed is some kind of extra vibration through the steering wheel over bumps. Almost like it's connected to something that is reverberating like a spring.

    I normally wouldn't think much of it, but I rented a model 3 several months ago and I don't recall this same thing happening in that car. It felt smoother over bumps.

    Has anyone else experienced this and could it be something loose in the suspension somewhere?

    BTW tires are all around 46psi and steering is set to SPORT.

    Definitely not that. I feel it even when I go over any bumps driving around an empty lot at low speeds.

    Does switching steering to comfort help?
