Mein Auto: 06' 330i
New owner! 06' 330i - some intake (?) noise questions? Goes away @ 3k?

Howdee all -

New owner of a 06' 330i...

Already done a little bit of maintenance work to her that was never done... OFH gasket had never been done - was leaking oil down the side of the engine for God knows how long... glad to say all looks dry there. Time will tell if VCG has been replaced....

One thing I haven't tackled yet is a noise during acceleration..

There is a faint rattle noise that is sporadic - like a piece of paper flapping around or somethinf fluttering randomly during acceleration until just before 3k.

Once 3k hits the noise goes away entirely... I'm thinking its related somehow to the air intake. Like a flapper valve opens all the way or closes all the way at 3k?

Should I be looking at something else?

Thanks guys for your help!
