Hard to explain, but the interior of my 94 325i creaks. Not real bad, but I notice it. There's no rattling, as if there is a loose screw in my dash...just general creaking from within the car during turns, over bumps, etc. No creaking on a smooth straight road.

Are there screws/bolts that have come loose over time? Could it be in my undercarriage? Anyone else notice this...more importantly, anyone else resolve this noise?

it is not that your parts are coming loose per se, but rather as the car ages the suspension and chassis becomes more prone to twsiting, which cause the creaks you hear. Rattles indicate something is loose. A crossbrace will help reduce them alot, as would new shocks.

Probably your springs. Mine does that when I sit down in it.

What I cannot stand is the rattle of something around my rear driverside speaker. I think the grill is loose. Everythime the bass hits it rattles so loud and sounds awful.

Glad to hear that I'm not alone in the creaking syndrome!

I'm not concerned that the car's falling apart because everything seems so tight/solid...just the noise. I thought it was leather creaking at first also...but have ruled that out. Not really thrilled with the prospect of finding every screw and bolt and tightening them.

Its not a blown speaker, its just the vibrations of the subs. Even if it were a blwon speaker, I have my rear speakers set to play at almost nothing.

Would anyone of you guys know of an aftermarket set of speakers like MB quart or anything of the same quality that will fit straight into the speaker wells coz the oem system sucks. I'm thingking of upgrading my system but don't know if I could fit a better speaker without drilling or modifying the speaker wells. :driving
