Front End Creaking Noise

https://www.youtube.com/shorts/i_BAB1R6oVE
Does anyone know what the cause of this creaking noise can be? Noise is present whenever I lightly tap the accelerator and brake pedal at parking lot speeds. Must need headphones to hear

Are you saying that it is like the exhaust shield causing this noise?

Probably your front and/or rear control arm and ball joints.

Sway bar end links. All 4 or my BMW's had this problem fixed under warranty.

It ended up being the front tie rods and there is a TSB out there for it.

Itís good they could actually replicate it and solve the problem cause thatís not always the case we just had our M5 dropped for yearly service and few other things including weird sound. Sounded like some vacuum leak of some sort. Over course of 5 days it couldnít be duplicated. We had it on video but it seems like it has to start happening on daily basis. Oh well. What matters is that we have that in writing in the system and they have video of it.

Yeah, I had to ask my advisor if a technician could ride with me. The technician knew what I was talking about before driving the car since he had the same car.
