Adding Rattle to the Reving--now to BMW corporate

Adding a rattle to my woes of reving.
Have had it for several months but kept getting worse.
This rattle is coming from the rear, at low speed before the car downshifts. So 'lugging' a gear will make it happen.
Replicated the rattle for service tech; shop kept the car 24 hrs and it rattled on the way home.
Took it back today and the shop foreman got in the car, listened for 20 seconds, did not replicate the problem but he began to rant about not being able to fix the problem. Will have to involve BMW.....GREAT will make sure the idle reving that still exists makes the list as well.

Gotta say, little pissed at BMW at this point. Not happy that a car of this price and quality is delivering these problems.
Still not happy with low speed surge; will make sure I throw that in as well.

Time will tell, will keep you up to date on BMW rep visit.
