Rattling Noise in the Morning

Please help!

I have a 2004 325XI. Every morning, when I start my car, there is a LOUD rattling noise coming from the back of my car (near the muffler and exhaust pipe). It lasts for about 10-15 seconds.

Last week, I brought it in for service. They checked it out and replaced my muffler.

However, the problem is still there! I still get the loud rattling noise each morning. I am bringing my car back in for service on Saturday.

Does anyone have an ideas what this could be?

I have a 2001 325XI. When I shut the machine down, a few seconds later the rear suspension makes a noticable "click" sound. I'm not sure if that has anything to do with it, but I dont think its the exhaust.
