Just got my car back from the dealer (flemington), and they:
Replaced the rearview mirror
Replaced the floppy seat speaker cover
felt-tape under the a-pillar cover
felt tape under the console trim
replaced/felt taped the center speaker grill

Now its as quiet as the inside of a coffinf

Lovin it! http://forums.freshalloy.com/images/graemlins/smile.gif

I see they replaced your rearview mirror...I think I am having noises from it too. Can you explain problem with your rearview mirror? The plastic on mine just seems to not be very solidly put together...If I gently squeeze it, rattles disappear for a while.

So, the new mirror still squeeks and rattles occasionally, and so does the center console. Especially when the car is hot from sitting in the sun, the uneven expansion/contraction of surfaces just makes the thing tick tick tick. press on the console and you get ticks and squeeks. sigh. http://forums.freshalloy.com/images/graemlins/rolleyes1.gif
