Another E9x M3 tic sound

Hey everybody, I just bought my M3 from texas and drove all the ay back to PA and when I was giving everybody rides I noticed a ticking/clicking sound that differed from the normal tics. It sounds like its coming from either the passenger head or a passenger pulley. The car is a stock 08 m3 dct, I looked over all of the ticking forums and can't find one that sounds like mine.

In the video it sounds a little deeper than it is, took it by a local BMW place and they don't think it's the rod bearings, they said it may be a pulley/belt and to pull the belt and run it for a second and see if it still makes the sound

Does the tick get faster when you rev it?

My car was doing this as well. Turned on the car upon cold start and started hearing the same ticking noise. Let it warm up to see if it would go away. After some time it started getting more faint. Took it around the block and listened to see if it would continue. The noise completely went away. Drove it again a week later, no noise. Tightens down belts and did an oil change. Will report back if noise comes back.


I've already had my rod bearings replace so that's out of the question. Thinking it could've just been a belt, chain tensioner or possibly cause I have had the car sitting for quiet sometime and I was getting a lifter tick.

Have a Z8 that made a ticking sound a lot like this. Loudest at cold start and when the engine came to temp it was hard to hear but still there. Replaced old oil with 10w60 and it went away.

Seemed to be a common thing for that car. I'd suggest doing it anyway. No telling how long the oil has been sitting in your new M.

That sounds more like a knock than the ticking/pinging sound some have experienced. To echo others, is the frequency increasing with rev's?
