    Typical Z4 Coupe Noise?

    All,
    I have a 2007 Z4 Coupe with 41k miles and a manual transmission.

    I noticed while stopped with the engine running, car in neutral, foot off clutch, a rattle coming from the transmission/engine area.

    The rattle is similar to the noise heard when something hard is bouncing around in the dryer.

    When I pushed the clutch pedal in the rattle stopped. Let it out rattle returns.

    Is this normal?

    Thanks

    .... but only once about 300 miles ago and it hasn't returned.

    Guest,
    Thanks for the response.
    The sound is actually hard to hear. I have to turn off the radio and heater fan to hear it.
    But it's always there when the car is idling with the clutch out.

    I took it to the dealer and they said it was normal. But there's still a year on the drive train warranty, so don't know if I'm getting the straight scoop there.

    But I wanted to see if this is a noise others may have heard?
    Rick

    I have the same year Z4 Coupe, 6 speed. I have to say that I have not experienced that noise. I get a little wining sound once in a while (insert joke here). But I am serious ... no rattle.
