My 2014 had a loud clicking noise at idle if you just took it off idle it would go away. When I traded it in the dealer thought there was something wrong with the motor and phoned BMW and they said it was normal " they all do that he was told"....... reminds me of when I went to go look at a bike with a mate of mine and the seller said " they all do that" and he said " they all do that when they fucked" :imaposer: :imaposer: I was told it had something to do with the decompression thing a ma bob....... :biggrin:

The BMW dealer learned some years ago to never say "it is normal, they all do that" to me.  The silly mechanic once tried, so I replied: "Okay thanks.  See that identical one over there?  It doesn't do it, please fix it?"
