Hilarious. Also, I did ask someone who had bought an E36 M3 new back in the day. He said his didn't rattle or creak at all when it was new, and suggested (correctly) that the plastic used in the E36 simply was not chemically stable, so it changes shape and hardness with age and causes fitment issues which then leads to all the noises. My car is doing pretty well inside these days, however. I got pretty much all of the rattles taken care of, but my glovebox does creak a bit on certain warmer days.
