Coilover springs squeak?

Picked up my M6 coupe 2 days ago and noticing a couple of noises.

I hear a high pitched squeaking when I go over bumps. Seems to happen most of the time. Not crazy loud but noticeable to me and my OCD!

I remember hearing about this on the F10 M5, seeing as the chassis shares identical components. With them I think it was the rear coilover springs.

Anyone else noticed this? What was the soltuion for F10 M5 owners? Is it fixable or tough luck?

They have more of a clunk sound or like a wrench is loose in the trunk. The rear springs are too short from what I read and the clunk is them reseating themselves back in the groove under weight. I don't rememebr hearing a squealing issue. I would have someone drive your car ovr a few speed bumps and see if you can hear it outside of the car or only inside and also if it's bi/unilateral in nature.

Just picked mine up last week and have not noticed any squeaking from the coilovers or springs. But I have noticed a slight rattle coming from the back seats at very low speeds between 5-20 mph.

As far as a possible solution, I remember reading a thread that was discussing a squeaking or clunking noise in the F10 M5 and also on the M6's that they were working to sort out and fix. I will try and find the thread and post for you.

Sorry to hear and good luck

Has anyone else noticed this issue? I seem to also have it and can't quite figure out what needs to be done to fix it.

My 2013 M6 coupe also chirps/squeaks over certain types of bumps. Not speed bumps but quick and sharp smaller bumps. If it were to happen all the time it would sound like those taxis with 200k miles on their suspension. I don't know if it's the bushings or springs, etc. I have not yet given up my car for the time needed to diagnose. Hopefully somebody will have an answer soon.

Literally have the exact same problem, but I live in a city where roads are not so kind and I end up hearing it all the time.
