Hi All
I've took the car to the dealer yesteday compalining about the tiking sound that you heard in the vedio the slight knocking @ 1.5 RPM or when dirving on a slope.

The tiking Disel sound is normal sound of all TWIN POWER TURBO engines. I heard another and a 3 series that has same engine and the sound is similar .. However, to be honest the Video sound is much louder than reality. and when the engine is warm the sound is less.

as for the knocking sound, they connected the car for diagnosis and it reported no faults as I was told that this cars has a Knocking sensor so what i am hearing is of a bad fuel although i use octaine 95 which is the highest in my country, yet, the dealer told me not to use it again and to stick to octain 92 and the make a full tank after the tank is emty ..

Will keep u updated once this is done .
