2006 BMW 325xi - front end rattle after letting off gas at low speeds

Hi all,

I just drove my 2006 BMW 325xi from Canada to Denver, CO (1700miles), and started experiencing the following problem:

Listen carefully for the metal rattle as I let off the gas (try to ignore the wind..). Only doing 20-30km/hr then slowing down. It usually happens right after I let off the gas. The car is totally smooth with no noises with accelerating or slowing down at higher speeds - but once I approach 0km/hr it starts to rattle again (sort of a spinning/rotation rattle).

Anyone know what this could be? Flywheel loosening and rattling after I decelerate? Any suggestions would be super helpful as I can't get it looked at for awhile and plan on continuing to drive it until then (unless told not to on this thread!)

Much appreciated,
