noise from rear brakes

I recently took my 2011 E92 M3 to the dealer, due to a metallic tapping/cracking noise generated from the rear brake area. It sounded like similar to something brushing the rotor dust shield, but was a bit more “springy” in sound, and was directly related to the rotation of the drive train. The tech I talked with said he had seen several identical issues with new M3’s, and its cause was e-brake related. He found that cleaning and lubricating it fixed the problem. He did the work yesterday, and so far no more noise. But, since it was somewhat intermittent, I can’t yet say for sure it’s fixed, but if it remains quite for a couple of days, that may be conclusive of a remedy. I was curious if others have had or, may currently have a similar problem?
