I was thinking seriously about upgrading to the ST but I'm not so sure now!
My mustang is tighter than a (use your imagination) compared to this POS.

The new TSB is 12-6-17.

As stated previously, the front spring and strut bearing are replaced.

That's what I'm afraid of-I don't think I want them if they aren't a different part number...

Yeah, I'd highly recommend waiting if I were you. My dealership won't touch my car because it's been lowered, even though the noise symptoms existed prior to my spring install.

It's been a long day. It's not really a POS but it does sounds like a clapped out Lada when you're driving it.

I test drove a SEL (built May 2012) DCT, hatch up in Canada with my Dad. I did not hear anything like we are all experiencing. He ended up ordering a Titanium.

Dumb question but can someone explain why you hear it at slow speeds only? On the highway I dont hear anything over rough/uneven pavement. Is the highway noise masking the sound?
