Evening all... I started my car with the door open the other day and noticed a rattle. It only does it from cold, very prominent if you blip the throttle. Goes away after a minute or so...

Here's a video as I left for work this morning..:

Thanks in advance!

It's a bit hard to hear it properly, but that does certainly sound like it unfortunately Frown

Could be, does it sound like a diesel?

Is it under warranty?

Gah. I have the warranty, yes. Surely this is something they should have noticed during its service and the 140 or however many point check they supposedly did in prep before I got it last week...

The cherished check is a load of tut.

So it seems. Sad

My mate bought his second Cooper, an R56 to replace the R50 he killed in little over a week. We left the dealer, joined the M20 and it went into Limp Home Mode, Thermostat I think. 2mi from the dealer. Found out from Barons that the supplying dealer had their warranty claim for that fix rejected on the grounds that it should have been noticed prior to handover.

Everyone seems to want to take short cuts and not do the job Evil or Very Mad

Severely disappointing. Not like they gave me a lot off the car and needed to water their margin or something...
