Noisy Turbo/Diesel clatter on 118d SE 3dr (o8 Reg)

I have had my 118d SE 3DR ,just coming up for a year now. It has done approx. 18,000 miles. Over the last couple of months, i have noticed that the engine becomes noisier than usual (Diesel Clatter/whiring noise) when it is labouring at approx 2,500-3000RPM (i.e: like when going around a roundabout).

Has anyone else experienced this, as i have had the local BMW dealer look at it & they say it is fine.

I was wondering if it may be the Turbo, as looking at reviews on the same engine when straped into the 3 Series, it has been acknowledged that this can be a problem.

Can anyone shed any light on this one?

Rich.

Moved for better notice. Does this tend to happen in cooler conditions? I hate to mention anything obvious, but how often is the oil changed?

It Has Just Had Its First Oil Service About 2 Weeks Ago, But It Was Doing It Before That. I Thought Like Yourself That It May Go Away After This But It Hasn't.
It Is More Noticable (louder) When Cold, But Is Still There When Warmed Up & In The Rev Band I Mentioned Earlier. It's More Likely To Occur In 2nd & 3rd Gear As Well.

Personally, I think the oil should be changed a bit more often than the dealer may say. Other than that, would you have a chance to compare your car to another 118d and see how it sounds?

Its better to consult your BMW car showroom. There the technician will guide you. Don't worry its not a big problem.

Lol, the technician will just tell you to dish out a load of money at the the dealership. Don't do that. There is a slight chance that the turbo is already caked w/ dried oil. Are you using synthetic oil?

I have experienced the same problem in the 335D. It has definitely gotten louder over the first 4 months of ownership (the weather has gotten colder).

I've never had a turbo before, but with the cold air I imagine it's possible it could cange the pitch of the engine.
