do you have the access door in the middle of the backseat? Could be the latch. Could be the package tray/leather or leather to leather. Could also be the rear shock mounts. Those are notorious for sounding like they are on the inside. Do you have the Harmon Kardon system with the rear sub? Could be the rear sub assembly rubbing against the rear deck/package tray

sway bar bushings will squeek like this. I usually put teflon tape around the sway bar and then reistall the mounts. This works better than lubing.

I believe I'm experiencing the same sqeek as you. Do you have the rear sunshade? I do, and I think it's comming from that. I'd like to know if you manage to stop the squeek.

The back of my 02 325ci definitely rattles when I go over bumps- I cant seem to find any source- it seems like the read deck lid or something... By the way what is a sway bar?
