I've had an intermitent ticking noise from the airvent, but it must be normal because my last E92 was the same. I kind of disgree with you though, BMW's shouldn't rattle at all when you pay that much for them and so much engineering and QC has gone into them. I drive rental toyotas and holdens and they rattle heaps, there's plastic everywhere.

That peeling trim was an issue across the 3 series. The dealer should hopefully replace them gratis for you as it is a well known issue. I think in my last E92, they replaced the entire passenger armrest but repainted the drivers handle, all on warranty.
