X3 Sport Seat Click

Just saw the thread on the 5 forum about seat click issues, but was wondering if anyone had this issue with their X3. I've had the problem with my 04 330i, and now I'm seeing the problem with the X3. The seat makes a click sound when weight shift occurs (from braking, accelerating from a stop, or when corering), and it can really be felt if you use your left hand and touch the metal anchor that the lap belt is mounted to. The click can sometimes even be felt with your butt.

I find it very annoying and was hoping someone would have had the issue and had it successfully resolved. The solution over at the 5 forum seems to indicate replacement of the rails/seat base is in order.
