Collecting info on '05 545i engine noise
545 owners, I have a problem and I need to know if any of you are experiencing the same thing. In the morning, cold, my engine sounds perfect, purrs like a kitten. But once I put her in gear and put a load on the drivetrain, I can hear a knock/tick/tapping noise. While it is faint, it stills bothers the heck out of me and the dealers service department, who has tired everything and can find nothing wrong, says the noise is typical for 05 545is. Does anyone else experience this noise, can you try and see if you do? I might be taking action against the dealer depending on your responses, thank you.
