About 6 months ago I actually did get hit by something, and cracked the windshield on the driver's side. Since it was replaced the noise hasn't been back. I always said it sounded like the windshield wasn't fitted just right, and was snapping into place, and now I'm pretty convinced that's what it was.

There have been a LOT of 1 Series owners who've had to have windshields replaced, and it makes me wonder if the glass is being overstressed at the factory. This isn't unheard of for sunroofs, but I've never heard of it happening on windshields.

Very interesing. I have the same issue. usually when I go over a bump or pothole. At first, I thought a rock came off the tire and hit the the bottom of the car, but it has happened way too many times now. The stressed windshield makes sense now.

creaks and squeaks, but it is surprisingly quiet on good roads. All my german cars had a creak and squeak of some kind. It never bothered me but then again I don't impose Lexus standards on a BMW.

Remember folks, you drive a BMW for the drive. It isn't not a transportation appliance.

I have a loud POP noise from my drivers side door, towards the windshield. It happens whenever I go over a bump the first time I drive the car after having been off overnight or for a long period of time. The first time I thought a rock or something hit my car. I haven't mentioned it to service because I have no confidence they will do anything other than look at me funny, but maybe I will now. It almost sounds like the window isn't seated correctly and when I hit a bump it snaps into place or something.

I had some wind noise which was cured, and a little rattle from the sunroof. On the whole nothing major, bust seeing as my last car was a SAAB and before that an old GMC truck my acceptance of rattles might be higher than most on here.

I have a loud popping noise coming from the right uperside of the dash, but it only does it when i first start the car most of the time, their also is a rattle coming from the right side passenger door, i just want to rip off the whole panel and not even worry about it. But mines due for service and its going friday, ill be sure to mention it to them for the SECOND time, maybe they will do something about it, ill keep you guys posted on what they say about all the rattles in the car. BMW should really do something about this im almost about to get something else because i dont know if i can take it ANYMORE!!!

Sometimes, I read these threads and posts and wonder if my car was even made in the same factory as other 135is. It has been the quietest car I have owned, with the exception of a '76 Jaguar XJ6C. Now with Michelin PS2 non RFTs, it is smooth and silent.

Creaking from the LHS (it's a RHD spec) when traversing speed bumps, dips (such as a driveway) or rough road surfaces - somewhere between the rear suspension to the B pillar. Lately I've been driving craning my neck towards the other side of the car to get a grip on where it's eminating from which has been a useless exercise! All is quite a shame as I've only had the car for ~ 4 months. Hopefully a dealer can investigate and fix as its under warranty but I'm not holding my breath as I'm sure it'll be hard to diagnose the cause. Really wanted a super-quiet car after a Golf 5 GTI that rattled non-stop from the dash - I threw a lot of money at that having it stripped but to no avail. Yetch!

Actually I'm surprised the interior isn't more noisy than it already is considering the hard ride and state of the roads here in the UK.

Also, my daily drive takes me over quite a rough road (not off road, just a crap surface) so doing that daily doesn't help much either I'd guess.

I won't be booking a dealer visit - its futile, they won't fix it. I've never had a rattle a dealer has been able to fix properly.

Does it pi** me off - yes! Does it make me want an Audi....f**k NO.

BMW has lost a lot of sales to Audi of late over here, in that former BMW drivers now seem to drive Audi. My feeling is things like interior rattles and the like are a reason.

I'm betting many people here would pay many $/£0000 more for a rock solid interior......
Similar story, here in Cape Town the car has been subjected to some very tough road surfaces when out of the city, and at speed, and in a way I'm not surprised that certain parts would loosen up, it's only normal - an Audi etc would exhibit the same issues, I can only assume. I'm also inclined to agree on the dealer assumption, but will give it a bash anyway with all fingers crossed!

Nice read and does apply some perspective to the situation! Likewise, on good roads my car is uber-quiet And the drive is A++.

Bring it into a good dealership, mine is just 6k shy from 50k and right now I'm having them fix every little rattle/creak that I hear.

The dashboard/glove compartment pop/creak, the cruise control stalk rattle, a rattle from the rear seat headrests, and the creaking that comes from the center armrest.

I did the same just shy of my 50K. Best part is that my dealer warranties their work for 2 years!

Abosolutely no squeaks, rattles, or other unwanted sounds from my convertible after a year of use. It is one of the most solid cars I've ever owned, and since I'm getting old and have always liked cars that's been quite a few.

I get a minor creak from the center console armrest, so far it's not that big of a deal to me.

I get a pop or 2 out of my dash occasionally. Seems to be associated with heat or cold.

During 19 months and 64,000 km with my 135i, a couple minor interior noises have come and gone, but for at least the last 8 months my car has been virtually silent. Maybe the car just needs some time to settle. Overall, this has been the most rattle/squeak-free car I've owned. I'm sure not having a sunroof helps too

My dash and glove box were getting so bad, I took the whole thing apart one weekend and put silicone spray on all the mating surfaces I could find. It's been back together for a few months and is much better. The silicone spray also seems to work well on the armrest joint that many others have had issues with.

The creaking on my seat turned out to be the rubber shroud around the seat belt recepticle. I covered it with felt material and the creak/squeak disappeared.

Happened all the time in my 2010 335i Sedan. Parcel shelf kept hitting the bulkhead.

I hate little noises like that.
