Angry 528 Right front rattle

My 2002 528 has developed a tinny rattle going over bumps towards the right front of the car. My mechanic has spent a lot of time on it but we cannot find the source. All ideas welcome as it is destroying my driving enjoyment - we have a lot of bumps in South Africa!

Unhappy My e39 528 is doing the same thing.

My rattle is also tinny, and coming from the right front. I have spent several hours under that car and can't locate anything loose that would make this noise. I've checked all the heat shields, the dust covers on the brakes. Did you end up finding yours?
