335i niggles before warranty expires

Hi folks,

Have a few niggles before my warranty expires (2007 335i) and was wondering if anybody has had similar issues.

Main three are:
At approx 2,000 rpm on acceleration get a noise coming from the exhaust I think- it sounds like static electricity- a mettalic rasp, would be how I would describe it. Its more noticable now due to the windows being open more often but its annoying all the same. Have searched and came up with a wastegate rattle but this seems to occur on de-accleration which I dont have. Any thoughts?

Rattle coming from passenger A pillar within the dash- very noticeable at speed limit speeds with a little wind.

Last one is a constant squeek/rubbing coming form the gearbox (manual) especially 3rd and 5th gears. I dont think its related to the internals of the gearbox but more like a superfical issue with the gears rubbing against their slots. Can alleviate the noise by pulling the gearlever back slightly once Im in 3rd or 5th on the move.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Do you have chrome exhaust tips? I have and there was an terrible rattle from them at tickover/low revs - turns out the gap between finisher and exhaust tailpipe had filled with small stones, causing said rattle.

Remove tips and get rid of grit, all sorted.
