I know you all said its normal for this MT, but does anyone know where the sound is coming from, clutch, diff....? and how the sound is created?

Anyone who drives a stick shift should know what a little TOB rattle is. Is it louder in some than others, yes. People are just too pre-disposed to think that a BMW shouldn't make any noises at all.
