Convertibles are notoriously squeaky when the top is up. Sometimes when the top is down, too. All because the body flexes a bit and the interior parts rub a bit.

Sometimes, there is additional creaking noises from the suspension bits - lubrication can help, as can better/new bushings.

Whaaaa? What flex?

Look here OP....E93, she square & sweet. Assume it's not your top as that's readily ID'd - but check Kat's guide to all weather top maintenance among stickies above. Look to your suspension.
  • Inspect ball joints and bushings
  • Spray silicone lube on/into sway mounts
  • Re-torque all including upper strut & rear shock mounts & sway end links
  • Re-torque shock tower brace - don't neglect center bolt
  • Have your ride aligned
