Engine noise

Hello
I have a couple of problems with my Oct 2013 MINI One Baker Street.
I've already posted on here about the pronounced engine whine (coming in at about 1800rpm and fading about 2000rpm in any gear), but I also have a loud 'metallic' rattle which is evident from a flat cold start. It is obviously temperature related as it stops after the engine warms up a bit, and can easily be heard from ouside the car when driving with the window open, though you can't hear it inside with the window up. The dealers have spent some time trying to diagnose this rattle and it would seem to be connected with the way the coolant pump doesn't cut in until the engine reaches a certain temperature, but they have now shown me a bulletin from MINI which says this noise is "normal". I find it hard to believe that a company with BMW's engineering experience would produce something that makes this sort of sound: Its not the sort of noise which makes you think "thats a funny noise", rather the sort of death rattle which makes you cringe and not want to drive the car as it sounds painful.
Does anyone else have any experience of this?
Thank you.
