I have noticed that after my 328is is making a crackling noise after i turn it off... is this a problem or not, if it is what do i need to do? To be more specific it just sounds like it is cooling off but other cars dont seem to do this..

If it is what i think it is then it's just your exhaust cooling down and nothing with the engine.

But just to be sure dous it make this noise just the second you turn the engine off or you can hear it for a while when out of the car.
