Question squeaky struts...and my car has 900 miles on it...

well this morning when i left for work, i got into the car and it 'squeaked'...so i got out and i pushed down on one of the rear quarter panels and it sounded like the struts were squeaking...i havent driven the car hard, because it aint broken in, is this normal for a new bimmer? is it just a break-in stage for the suspension, dust maybe? hmm, and when they were doing the perma-plate stuff on my z4, i had a 2005 330i which only had 19xxx miles on it, and it squeaked as well, almost the same way...any ideas?
well then...

I don't think it should do that. I'd ask them where you got it

sounds really weird to me, either way it will definately be coverd by warranty, however id give it a few more days just to see if it is actually a problem or is it just a 1 time thing

Alot of times especially in new cars it's exhaust hangars that are still really tight. Have the dealer check it out - I'd almost bet it's a hangar or a heat sheild.
