X3 F25 35I cold start buzzing,clicking engine noise

Hello everybody

I purchased new X3 F25 35i and im facing a serious engine noise problem
With every cold engine starts / loud strange buzzing and clicking engine noise is detected for at least 30 seconds only

in addition after engine warmup (buzzing ,clicking noise) is not detected 90%but while driving the car and accelerating from 1500 to 2000 rpm it s lightly noted !! for less then a second !!

i decided to go to bmw agent to inspect my car , i suggested the technical engineer to inspect waste gate actuater s, fuel injectors ,or the hydraulic valve lifter

unfortunatelly after car inspection ,they declared that mentioned noise is detected but no problem with the engine (Nothing Wrong as per their point of view) normal noise!!!

unfortunatelly ,i was not convinced

could any one advise

shall i sell the car ? it was DRIVEN only 1400 KMonly

i already left the car over two nights
unfortunateely Bavarian auto group in egypt are covering the whole republic by their own services centers and of course connected with same it network
i made a complain to BMW Area regional manager but without a single Reply
its seems that such buzzing noise it s somenting normal or they dont want to admitt to avoid turbo replacement
as per my side im not paying 61000 euro to hear a buzzing noise every time im starting cold engine
the most impressive thing that they asked me to enjoy my ride and to wait if somenthing is not right with engine for sure it will be detected and will be replaced ( u have sir two years warrenty ) dont worry
