I am tempted to get them addressed its just a pain in the to spend a day off at a dealer.
Can't agree with that one I'm afraid. I ran a 523i for four years and it drove me nuts with rattles and squeaks from the doors, seats and dashboard. Very disappointing reliability as well. With regard to Renaults I have to say though our old Lag 1 with 170k has far fewer rattles that our Lag II with 104k on it.
