I have a 02 e46 330ci with 28k miles. I've noticed lately that everytime I get in and out of the car there is a loud squeak coming from the suspension. Has anyone encountered the same issue? Is this something that is easily remedied?

Could be the handbrake-try getting in and out with the handbrake off(level ground obviously).
Yes I'll bet it's the handbrake as well. My 325i and M3 do it all the time.

I also had this happen a couple of times but both times I did not have the hand brake on. If I bounce the car with my hands it continues to do it. Other trips it doesn't do it even when I try to bounce the car. To me it sound more like metal to metal grinding. Maybe when the exhaust gets particularly hot? Maybe this is not what you're talking about?
