Mine has a little bit on uneven driveways, but not too bad... The Akra with coldstart on sounds pretty crazy though..

Now on the other hand... the '10 550 MSport Creaks like CRAZY from the door seals. In comparison to the M3, the M3 might as well be completely silent.

My e92 at 21k creaks too on a driveway or bumps or dips when i pull up at an angle. Sound comes from rear seat/trunk area....

I got an 07 e90 335 with 31,000 miles and it makes all type of sounds when going over bumps. I think that the exhaust, FBO and suspension mods cant be helping matters

Still an amazing car!!!
I agree, it gives the car character too!

My driveway is connected to an alley, which has a mild V-shape. Every time I backed out, and bottomed out (not literally) in the V, the M3 would creak like crazy. A very annoying way to start my journey!

Also the driver's seat belt butler rattled like crazy, drove me nuts.
