I bought my car with roughly 4,000 miles on it and this same noise was there. Dealer said to keep an eye on it, but nothing appeared wrong. Next time I go in I'll have them look at the rack, but I hate to replace it if the noise is just going to come back.
I will have BMW replace the rack every week if I have to. There is apparently something wrong with the design or production of the rack. Unless owners press BMW to keep replacing the defect, they won't do anything. BTW.......I noticed excessive tire wear the last few months and BMW initially attributed that to the bad tie rod and that turned into the rack replacement. So keep a close watch on your front tires. Mine were wearing noticeably on the outside edge.
