Rattling in Back Seat

Hey guys just another M3 owner with a first world problem here. Please entertain me for a moment..

About 6K miles on the car. Noticed going over bumps now that there's a noticeable rattle coming from the back seat area. I never blast music, nor have I had sexual relations in that part of the car, so I'm trying to figure out what it could be. The only thing I can think of is something rattling in the rear sunshade? Why did I get that thing again?

Thoughts?

chk the fold down seats to make sure they are in fact latched, also i've found that sometimes the seatbelt receivers are in a weird position where they will rattle against the other piece of plastic underneath it

I've had a rattle since I installed my trunk sub
Turned out to be the 3rd brake light
The plastic frame rattles against the glass
Will take care of it in the weekend
Something soft in between
Felt or something similar

Anyone find out how to fix this? I have the same rattle, and it appears to be coming from the single side of the split down seats.

The back seat belt recepticles can rattle against the plastic behind it. You might try moving them around a bit, to see if that's the cause.
