Hi all new to the forum and new owner of a 435i convertible.

I’ve had the Car for about a week and a number of things have gone a bit wrong. First rocker cover leak (sorted by bmw at a large cost🙄). Then the rear light connection had corroded so need to repin connection.

Now the most annoying but least problematic I guess.

When I get into my car and started driving I can hear what sounds like interior panels rubbing against each other from the drivers side rear quarter. It seems to get worse Going over rough ground and is very annoying and for a car of this stature I don’t believe to be ‘normal’. Has anyone else suffered from these noises on the convertibles.

Hi! Yes, my 430i started doing it after maybe 10k miles. I took it in this week (at 20k miles) and they applied some tape to it which didn’t fix it for more than a day or two, but it was covered under warranty so no cost. I’ve heard people complain after a certain amount of miles about it. It’s the roof rubbing against the car. Extremely annoying and loud.

Hi
I recently bought a second hand F33 and have similar squeaks etc of roof panels rubbing against each other. I was advised t buy some rubber softener, which I did from Amazon. Works really well, it’s a liquid in a bottle with a sponge applicator. I worked it all around the rubber seals of roof, doors etc and the squeaking stopped. I’ve also heard it stops the doors freezing shut in the cold, but we haven’t had weather cold enough yet in Kent to test that theory!
Theres plenty of products out there so I guess give a few of them a try?
