Creaking car after panel replacements

My 2017 i30 was damaged in the December hail storm. The wait was so long to get it fixed it just went in for almost 4 weeks and I got it back on Friday.

They pretty much had to replace every panel and now when I'm driving it creaks. It's a plasticy sound and I'm pretty sure it's the panels.

Has anyone experienced this before? Is it something that is normal and will settle down?

I will talk to them this week because I actually need to take it back anyway. When they handed it over they said it's all good except the horn isn't working They couldn't figure it out and said they checked the fuses and everything. I really needed the car for the weekend so he's said to bring it back and they'll get an auto electrician to look at it.

All up I'm feeling a bit pissed off. My car is almost brand new with less than 25,000 kms and now I feel like it's dodgy. I wish it was written off but the repairs were about $12,000 so I guess cheaper for the insurance company.

Did they have to do any work on straightening the frame? Even if not i would start with checking all the body bushings. In bad wrecks they can get tweaked or loosened and it will introduce creaking noises.
