E82 / E87 / E88 1 Series (2008 - 2013)
BMWs throw back to the iconic 2002, with a renewed form and function. The smallest car in BMW's line up but still packs a punch. Available in coupe or convertible, powered by a naturaly aspirated inline 6 in the 128 or the turbo twin power inline 6 rocket sled 135.

Angry Rattling noise BMW 116i

I live in Barbados in the Caribbean and I am the owner of a 2005 BMW 116i; chassis no is WBAUF12050PN23697; engine no A077H353. It is manual; Petrol.
The problem I have relates to a rattling noise my BMW makes on starting. I took it to my mechanic who suggested i ordered a timing chain; tensioner and tensioner guide. These were installed but the noise is still there.

Timing gears were set up and bolts torqued with correct tools. Vehicle started and drove well, then after oil change valve train noise returned. Checked over timing and was found that intake cam shifted from position even though securing bolt remained accurately torqued. Gear is suspected as faulty.

I was then asked to order an intake vanos valve. This was installed and the noise although not as loud is still there. What is the possible solution?
