I got similar problem. When accelerating round a miniroundabout there is quite a load scream/squeek from the rear right bit of the car. i cannot replicate it every time. my initial tought is the differential but your help/suggestion will be much appreciated.

For the OP:
Check www.realoem.com there is a link that says click here and you are in.
Enter the relevant data for your car and click on browse parts.
Go to rear axle and chose options from the left menu. You will have a choice of diagrammes with the names of the relevant bits under it in a table. It is good site and one can learn a lot from there.
it is probably number 8 here but can be in addition 9, 13, 14.
Regards,

it was the guide supportt on my e46, part no.7 that squeeked http://www.realoem.com/bmw/showparts.do?model=ER92&mospid=47642&btnr=33_0841&hg=33&fg=45

The upper shock mount on my old e46 330d is different..yours shown here part no 8 http://www.realoem.com/bmw/showparts.do?model=DL72&mospid=47545&btnr=33_0450&hg=33&fg=45

have a look at the rear ball joint on the wheel carrier, part no 2 shown here on your motor same as my current e60, http://www.realoem.com/bmw/showparts.do?model=DL72&mospid=47545&btnr=33_0519&hg=33&fg=30

they would go dry and creak slightly, i pierced a small hole in the rubber boot on mine, pumped in some grease/ oil..mines quiet as a mouse now, get it up on a lift, and pull down on the rear anti roll bar or something to compress spring while holding the bush, you will feel a vibration, thats your creaking sound, oil it up if there is no play in it, it will keep you going until you replace it!worked for me and mine was very noisy, started out as slight creaking!
