I have had the same problem for months and today I finally found it !!!! It was the rear brake pads (on the piston side of the caliper) Whomever installed the rear brakes didnt put any grease or anything to keep them quiet. So whenever driving they would clank off the rotor. I found some great rubber invention (allmost like a liquid gasket material) at an autopparts store, it lightly adhears the pad to the piston and rubberizes to prevent vibration. Problem solved for $2.00
Bigron I hopes this helps, because after driving around for two months in a beautiful bimmer that sounds like its falling apart, I know how imbarassing it can be.
Thanks for your help Billb...once again....its appreciated

Bigron as usual* * * to this forum and I tell you anything/everything can rattle...but prior to go after brake pads I'll check rear shocks/ any rubber bushing in the back/ loose parts i.e muffler then take it from there....good luck
Note: Usually you can eliminate many possibilities if you can REPRODUCE the rattle at will....
