my 2004 745i (2500 miles-2 month old) has what appears to be an unfixable rattle coming from the dash. i heard a slight noise when i took delivery but both the dealership and i thought it was a noise that would "settle in" with time. After 3-4 weeks it sounded like the dash was falling apart! 2 attempted fixes so far with no satisfaction. also happens mostly in cold weather on normal wisconsin roads!. i was given some story about metal and aluminum and the bolts warming up! .. yeah..whatever.. i just want it to drive properly! at almost 80K i only want to hear the "tire slap" not a dashboard rattle! also i have a crackle/whine coming from the front speakers..my car sucks!.. anyone else have this problem?.. i should have bought a buick!!..
