mechanic has been and checked all bearings all ok,
i have had a good look through the internet to find simialar problems;

with the sites i have been reading,
take into consideration most have been m3 grinding problems,
they say to use a special oil,
could this just be for the m3,
apparently the noise still continues for a while till it has been run in
