Mein Auto: 2012 328i
clicking tapping noise

I just got a 2013 328i. After driving it for approximately 700 miles, I noticed a clicking/tapping noise after the engine is shut off. The noise goes on for about 10 minutes. It is a loud tapping noise that sounds off along with the normal ticking sound after the car is shut off.

This is quite unbelievable. I had to returned a 2012 service loaner with less than 5,000 miles that I purchased because it was giving off a grinding noise at 15 mph that the dearlership could not fix. After numereous back and forth and headache the dealer finally gave me a 2013 as a replacement. Now the 2013 car is giving me problems too. BMW's quality has definitely gone down hill. I had a 2000 323i for eleven years and never experience the problems like these. Just unbelievable.
