Pass side A pillar rattle?

Anyone else have a rattle emanating out of where the pass a pillar meets the dash? Shows itself inconsistently on back roads. Emptied the glovebox contents just to be sure and its the same. Not speed sensitive.

I have rattle from the triangular piece in the door, which is vey close to where your rattle is? Mines not all the time though, just on rough surfaces. As i have hi-fi sound only and not HK sound. I will be installing the HK speakers at some point, so will be reseating everything then.

It seems to come more out of the dash, I do have the HK tweet in the door.

I have it too. Was on the list of things when I left it in for service. They did not manage to find what it is or fix it.

Yes. The interior rattles. A lot. The stiffer suspension doesn't help.

Can try to ask the dealer to try to find and fix it. But it doesn't always gets fixed.

Do I care? Not really. Think about this, the M4 GTS rattles like crazy too.

I have had it since new (2017). Just got it addressed; we'll see when I pick up the car today if it is fixed or not. Here is what the repair order says:

"customer states there is an intermittent rattle in the cabin when going over
rough pavement. It is coming from the right side near the A-pillar customer
going on test drive with shop fore man cc"

Cause:
Correction: TEST DROVE VEHICLE AND VERIFIED COMPLAINT. FOUND NOISE COMING FROM DASH
AREA ON PASSENGER SIDE. REMOVED A-PILLAR AND PASSENGER AIR VENT. TEST DROVE
VEHICLE AND FOUND NOISE STILL PRESENT. REMOVED CENTER VENTS AND TEST DROVE
VEHICLE. FOUND NOISE STILL PRESENT. REMOVED DASH AND FOUND A BOLT THAT HOLDS
SKELETON FRAME TO VEHICLE LOSE. TIGHTENED BOLT AND REINSTALLED DASH. TEST DROVE
VEHICLE AND FOUND NOISE NO LONGER PRESENT. REINSTALLED ALL OTHER PARTS. TEST
DROVE VEHICLE ONE LAST TIME AND FOUND NOISE NO LONGER PRESENT.

Part two: picked up the car this afternoon, got five minutes into the drive home before the exact same rattle started again. Took it back to the dealership again. It has already been there for 8 days.

I've never seen/heard just swapping speakers do much at all without also adding a more powerful amp. Is it different in the M2? Focals make a big difference on their own?

Part Three: another two weeks went by. I was told by the dealer the rattle has been fixed and was determined to be a loose screw in the "aftermarket" (actually, it's a BMW carbon accessory) passenger mirror cover. Does appear to have resolved the issue though, and I am grateful they did not have to resort to removing the windshield under the TSB I mentioned above.
