Don't know if mines the same thing that you're experiencing OP, but when im driving especially on the highway i hear clicking and rattling noises from the trim piece where it goes across the center console, sounds like its loose but it isn't...been really annoying and kinda embarrassing if a passenger notices it

Can you tell me more about the issue with dashboard sinking? Do you mean by the passenger airbag? My car has this rectangular indentation on the dash around where the airbag is since I bought it! So can I get this looked at by BMW? Feel free to PM me so we don't thread jack lol

i feel like the noise is definitely originating from the AC system - almost like there is a internal housing flap/door flopping back and forth.

I had someone in car the other night that was like what the hell is that noise?? ugh

the good news is it only happens if i turn left or right or go up or down an incline or hit anything bigger than an expansion joint - other than that its perfect!
