Although I'm glad that I haven't find any serious rattle on my E90 M3 yet. But this gets me thinking why would the M3 being a more expensive and solid car is having more of these "Quality" related problem than a 335i.
Even though it costs more, the added cost doesn't go into the interior. The m3 has the exact same interior trim panels as any other 3 series. Take that and add a much stiffer suspension, 19s, and a heavier engine but no extra sound dampening and younger your rattles.
