I've got an 2003 E39 530i, and whenever I'm turning or driving on low revs I can hear a rattle/creaking coming from more the left side of the car. This happens when I turn, more so when turning left. Any ideas of where to look? I've checked power steering and just needed a small top up, but still the noise remains...

Is it a rattle or a creak? Creak tends to suggest things like suspension, shock mounts etc. Rattle could be something simple like the heat shield on the underside or maybe one of the protection plates behind the brake rotors.

Just driven it again and it feels more like a creak. Couple friends suggest its the front arm bushes that have gone, which might make sense.
