2008 X5 3.0 Auto Tailgate Noise

Purchased my 2008 X5 3.0 in NOV 2007 with the new automatic tailgate feature and have a perennial, completely annoying clunk/rattle every time I move the vehicle across an uneven surface coming from the tailgate. I've had the car in twice for service- first time they lubbed the latches. Second time, the service rep said BMW has a SIB for the problem and the technician installed a gasket and made adjustments - all to no avail.

BLUF - I believe the noise is a manufacturing defect but will need the help of others with the similar problem to build a strong enough case to compel BMW to take the proper corrective steps to stop the noise.

If you have or have had this problem, would you please post hear and describe what actions you've undertaken to correct the issue. Together we'll get BMW to do the right thing and fix the tailgate.
