E82 / 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 either an inline 6 in the 128 or the twin turbo rocket sled 135.

Funny noise after starting

In the morning my car will start well but after engaging in to drive or reverse it will make some chain line noise. After warming the noise will go, I have realized that it does these after parking for a long time or when the engine is not warm.

I Have a 2008 135i which I bought new and have recently noticed some strange things going on. It has always made a humming sound when the remote fob is used to, for example, open the trunk and I assumed that is normal--perhaps waking up the computer (?). Several weeks ago my wife noticed that it was making a similar sound while sitting in the garage, undisturbed for at least several hours. I opened and shut the door and the sound stopped.

I was concerned about the samething, but apparently it's normal for a twin turbo.... It does that until the oil fully circulates.
