It was inevitable...

It was inevitable that my interior panels all started to creak!

I have a 2011 and I live in the city with horrible roads. I first started to hear the creaks and rattles only in the winter, but now it's year round.

Are you all experiencing the same?

Anytime I think I hear something I crank the stereo up and click my heels three times saying "there's no place like home".

My dash creaks near the radio controls in my 2011. Drives me nuts!

I wish I had a non Nav/idrive car. I believe those are less prone to creaks.

Yes, cant pinpoint exactly where but mine comes from low speeds and armrest area. Annoying to say the least.

There goes that theory out the window.

I wish I had an optionless car like yours. I hate my sunroof and that ugly growth in the middle of my dash.

I brought my door seals back to life with Poorboys Trim Restorer and that seems to have scared the rattle gremlins away! I guess the squeaks were coming mostly from the windows against the old rubber, as they weren't absorbing the shock when riding over any bumps.

Recommend giving this a shot, if you're experiencing rattles in your E92. Suppose it's a design flaw with the frameless windows over time.

it's a tight suspension. So yes. My 2013 interior is not making any creak noise sofar. If it's your door rubber seals then the Gummipflege applicator will eliminate that. The soap from washes tends to dry these.

If you remove the trim pieces on dash, center counsel, doors and AC vents......those armor all wipes are great for cleaning the grime out of gaps between pieces. Reinstallation after cleaning usually silences these noises FYI.

It creaks

The car creaks...a well known issue...

Solution: drive in a higher gear, get a new exhaust, etc. Attenuates the creaks and otherwise they just don't seem to matter any more
