My 2011 has had a rattle from the rear seats and/or the roof just behind the sunroof area, pretty much since day 1.

I put it down to the harsh suspension and RFTs as it only happens over rough roads. I'm at 7000km only but thinking of ditching the RFTs just to have a comfortable ride without rattles!

My 2008 rattle/creaks for the length of the dash on anything that isn't finished like glass. The d(st)ealer looks at me like I have 2 heads when I mention it. Then they took the car overnight and now agree that it is a little "distracting". Alas no idea on a fix. So I turn up the stereo.

Remember folks, you drive a BMW for the drive. It isn't not a transportation appliance.
x2.... you want quiet drive a boat (large car).

See if theres another dealer in your area that would be able to help you. My service advisor doesnt hesitate for a even second when I tell him what squeaks/rattles in my car. He just writes it down on the computer and has the techs in the shop take it for a drive and to be honest they work on these cars so much they can identify and fix the problems without even having to drive them. (I noticed because of the 1 mile In/Out Mileage from when I dropped off my car for the repairs)
