It's another case of 'they all do that eventually' syndrome. I fixed mine by changing the tranny fluid to Redline Shockproof (Heavy) racing fluid. The stuff comes out like red nailpolish and is rated at 75w250 ...

Hi, I'm not sure if this is something to be worried about, but just wanted to ask. I have recently purchased a 1988 M3 and have noticed that their is a slight (not loud, but noticible) rattling noise that sounds like its coming from the engine. This is only noticible at idle, and goes away if I push down the clutch pedal.

Any ideas?
