When engine is started on 2001 7 series there is a loud metalic rattle that dealership is unable to pinpoint. Anyone had and resolved this? Sounds like a Ford with 100K miles! Pristine vehicle with 32K miles.
Thanks in advance for advice.

given its not a 740 V8, our E36 325 made that kind of noise, and we switched the oil to a better grade, and it went away!
