I have a very annoying noise around my head when driving, not sure if this is coming from the headrest or the sunroof, not always on but very noticeable when no music on, any of you folks experienced similar noise if so any solutions on how to fix this? thanks for any feedbacks on this none sense from a car meant to be Premium.

I heard one of the member had same problem and found out the hex. screw from sunroof were loose to make some kind of noise. Check and see they are tight enough. I hope this helps.

My plastic seatbelt buckles rub against the leather seat, squeaking through every bump and turn. It's irritating.

excellent, thanks Alan or this one I guess next one on my list of the belt is fine and not the one behind the problem, mind you very annoyed about this in a car like the 5 series. maybe on a 1 series.

Hi JNolSol, I know the passenger one after used it never goes back properly hence moves against the plastic cover on the B pillar, once pushed back to its normal position no longer an issue, i.e. you want to it back between the seat and the b pillar fully back, this is how I solve this one, the seat I have are the standard sport one with the M package.

The squeak is actually coming from the female buckle, rubbed against the bottom seat.
