2007 Cooper D (r56) - weird noise! Just bought 4 days ago!

I took a video of the issue. I just bought her 4 days ago and I doubt i heard the noise before, and I took her to a mechanic before buying who gave the go-ahead. What can it be?

replace exclamation marks with a .

This noise can be heard when getting the biting point of the car, as well as when accelerating, like for example in 4th gear.

I cant view that link, but I guess if your mechanic wasnt concerned then its nothing to worry about?? Just ignore it as he did.

Just swap the exclamation marks with . I highly highly doubt the noise was there before, hence my worry.

Sorry to have to tell you this, but it sounds like you have the so called 'death rattle'. If the car has a full BMW service history, you may be able to get it repaired as a goodwill gesture by BMW. However, I just noticed it's a D? I didn't think this issue affected the diesel engines. It needs to be checked and sorted, or the timing chain could snap and that would require a new engine.
It's a known fault with earlier petrol engines, especially in the S....as S & D are next to each other on the keyboard, I'm thinking you meant it's an S.
Do a google search for Mini death rattle.....they did put out a fix for it, but if you have to pay for it, then it will be expensive. There are also a whole load of youtube videos about it
