Rattles?

Hey, just wondering if anybody has any rattles so far on their M2. I have been hearing a tiny "click" sound on the front passenger side (door perhaps?) every time the the front wheel on that side goes over a small bump. Its not always the case though as I only hear it from time to time. I have removed everything on the car. Noise is still there. Aside from that, the car is rock solid and amazing to drive!

I have some minor rattles that I think are coming from the center console armrest area and the passenger seat back.

I have the same rattle... Sounds like just poor insulation in the rear deck.

I get various rattles from the inside, mainly rear deck and lower dash area. Once the car gets warmed up after driving a while the rattles go away. Makes me think the rattles will disappear once warm weather gets here.
We have had the coldest winter here in 24 years. ( Relative, I know! )

Lately, I get a light clacking sound coming from passenger rear when going over bumps. Not a constant occurrence however.
I recently installed spacers but have yet to recheck torque specs so maybe related? It's def a metal on metal kind of sound.

how many cars have been made to date?
Seems like a POC - maybe this is why BMW is lacking in the sales race

A pothole or a speed bump? Could just be your suspension compressing

Please post the outcome. I'll have it fixed if there is a solution, otherwise it's not too much of a bother.

It's only on the passenger side though. It's not there all the time I go over a bump. Weird

I had BMW look at the rear deck rattle on mine. They put in some extra insulation tape and it went away. There's another one in the driver's door that is becoming annoying.

Me to, but it seems to be a certain frequency that does it, not bumps in the road.

Yep, same here. I hear it both with certain frequencies of audio as well as driving over uneven surfaces. Again, it doesn't bother me too much, but it's there.

Do you know where they placed the tape?

At least three rattles.
1) Glovebox
2) trim near driver-side tweeter
3) frameless window seal

Nearly all of them go away at temperatures above 65deg.

I have a similar issue - going 40 mph or better if I hit a rough spot, etc. in the road a little tap noise occurs. Sounds like something at the top of the right rear suspension possibly. My dealer looked it over and the suspension is torqued as it should be in the rear. Currently 850 miles on the car, it started happening around mile 750 or so. Was on a nice country drive on perfect roads, didn't hit anything.

I ran a test folding the rear seats down and I "thought" it went away. Got home and it started snowing a couple hours later, need to test more to confirm if that was it or not.

I have a bunch of rattles, only 1 fixed. The concrete street by my house has alot of 'small bumps' that causes the car to rattle all over. This is all low spd (20mph)

1) Rear deck rattle - dealer applied felt tape to the rear deck area - rattle gone. Not sure where they applied it.

2) Above center console (SOS button) rattle - dealer applied tape, no difference. I applied a bunch of felt tape and pads all around the area, slight difference.

Took it back to dealer, they said nothing else can be done...basically concluding its a M car, stiff suspension and low profile tires = noise (boo)

I will probably take the car in to a diff dealership on my next service and see what they can do.

Every BMW I have owned has creaks and rattles. Nothing is going to cure it. What really bugs me is the windows making noise against the seals when its chilly out. Warm they are nice and quite.

The ASD fake exhaust noise also has rattles engineered in as well. Good news, when you code out or bypass the ASD all rattles go away.
