Flywheel Clatter

Anybody experiencing a somewhat noisy flywheel with the car idling at standstill with the clutch out.........sounds a bit like a lightened flywheel in a race car. It goes away with the clutch depressed.

Getting ready to do the 1200 mile service and would like to know whether to make an issue of it........thanks, Joe

Pretty much every E90 does that. My 323i even does it... although it seems to have stopped since I just got the Inspection I at 48,000km.
