Hi Doug,
I too have squeaky sport seats in a "00 M Roadster. The first squeak came from the seat mounting frame and was replaced by the dealer. The design is sort of cheap, as the front "attachment" slides into a hook on the frame while the rear of the seat is attached by two bolts. That was one squeak, but the second is much more difficult. It appears to be coming from the mid-back area and ocurrs whenever I shift my weight or move a little. I am able to duplicate the noise (more like a slight chirp) by pushing on the seat back near the seam in the leather where it contacts my shoulder blades. I have not had it repaired yet, but will. Hope this helps. Good luck, Allan

I recently took ownership of a new Z3 3.0 ($3K dealer
incentive was too good to pass up!). Car is everything
I thought it'd be, EXCEPT, for a very squeaky drivers

The squeak comes from the plastics of the upper left
rear of the seat (just behind left shoulder and about
where the seatbelt is) and the inner section of the body
just behind the door. On the passenger's side, I have
a good 1" clearance with the seat all the way back and
fully reclined. Squeaks are especially noticeable on
city street driving.

Anyone else ever have this problem? I'm going to bring
this up with the dealer when it's time for the first
scheduled service, but, a temp fix in the meantime
would be greatly appreciated.
