My daughter in law has the same problem with her 2009 X5. I have not listened to it, but she describes it as a very annoying rattle coming from the tailgate area. She has had the vehicle to her dealer at least twice to identify the problem. A mechanic actually laid down in the cargo area as the vehicle was being driven to try to solve it. No positive results at this time. I visually inspected the vehicle and noticed an abundance of PLASTIC parts back there. I have owned my E39 for 9 years since new and have never experienced this kind of quality issues. My 2007 Toyota Camry on the other hand is just a bucket of rattles throughout the interior and due entirely I'm sure to the extensive use of plastic around the dash and doors.
