You'll hear lots rattles. Doors, tailgate and dash on mine are all bad.

Been into BMW twice... and not fixed any of them. I just turn the stereo up now and ignore them.

Not good, but a sign of a cheaper materials and a budget X in my opinion.

Was the speaker producing sound? If the car wasn't on or moving, you must have a critter in there. :

I have had mine for a little over 2 years now and not a single rattle. I don't think it is the cheaper materials and a budget X

I may have a Friday car, but I'm surprised at the amount of rattles.

My 'worst' one is in the rear passenger door where it becomes a violent vibration. Imagine sticking a pencil in a desk fan and you'll get the idea. My daughter won't sit on that side of the car at the moment.

What annoys me is the fact BMW can never find the cause. I've demo'd it to the dealer, but they still can't fix it.

The cars going in again to have some other work done, so I'll mention it again... along with my 2nd juddery clutch (
