It's odd that the 2004 - 2010 X3 have a specific "Check Gas Cap" indicator light and the F25 X3 just incorporates under the generic CEL.

See if the rattle is coming from the exhaust exit. Could be the vacuum tube has come off of the flap/closure mechanism.

Check the vacuum tube going to the exhaust flap at the rear before you change your TC chain. If it is off or has a hole worn in it, the exhaust flap will rattle at times.

I recommended the 2nd push of the Stop/Start button (with foot off brake). He said that did nothing. Maybe he waited too long? Not long enough? I will try it myself when i get a chance.

Not normal.

Will be replaced under warranty - no questions.

Not sure who BMW sources for the headlight units - but I have seen this occur occassionally, and not just on BMWs.
