Hello and welcome to the forum 😊

I’ve not heard of this problem. My G29 roof seem OK.

If it's under warranty, let BMW service department sort it out. If not under warrant, bring along a passenger to help you to isolate the location. Press on various locations observing if the noise stops. From experience, determining the location by ear can be challenging because the apparent direction/location of the sound can be misleading.

I had a similar problem which, after much investigation, was fixed by lowering the roof and pushing down the rollbar. The creaking was actually coming from the rollbar and not the roof.
