Creaking headrest and steering vibration - help and advice please

Hi, - I'm new to the forum, so please be gentle!

I am the proud owner of a 740d m sport and i love it. However i have noticed a really annoying creaking noise which appears to be comming from the front passenger head rest. The noise only appears when the car is moving and i can't seem to replicate the noise when the car is stationary. It doesn't make any difference if the seat has a passenger in it or not. Also sometimes the noise does disappear, but will return for no apparent reason? The noise does seem to go away if i push against the head rest, but does return the minute i let go of it.

I have also noticed a slight virbration through the steering wheel. I have had the tyres recently changed and balanced so i don't think it is a problem with the tyres (and the vibration was there before the tyres were replaced) I must stress that the virbration is very slight and sometimes i think it is me not the car, but i have had the car for almost one year and clocked up 30,000miles and i'm sure this virbration wasn't there to start with.

Other than that the car is amazing!!

any help or advice would be greatly appreciated
