Fact is, BMW has recognized in a few cases that it is an issue and fixed under warranty at great expense. It's not just another "normal" noise.
Problem is, you don't know that it's just a "cosmetic undesirable noise" and that the car will go for 500K miles. That's all speculation from your end that doesn't help. Mine was getting worse, louder and longer. It very well could have become a serious issue and caused a failure but I had it fixed instead.
oh really, thanks. You really starting to sound like to 25 yr old tool you prob are.
look at what I bolded; ironic huh? what's more speculative?
