Hi all,

I have an 04 325i 5mt touring. Since it's getting colder in the Netherlands I've been hearing this strange rattle on cold starts. the engine only does this the first second while it's cold. I had the Vanos unit revised about 2 months ago. so that shouldn't be the problem. the engine runs fine otherwise and has plenty of power.
