It sounds like it's coming from more of the rear of the car rather than the front. So maybe it is the exhaust. I'll give it until 1200 miles and see if it keeps doing it (I'm at 100 miles now).

Thanks for the info.

: If it is doing it after you turn the engine off it is either one of two things your not used to.
: 1. Catolytic and exhaust breaking in. (normal)
: 2. The Engine fan will come on with the engine off for a few mins. (normal)
: 3. Engine fan blade slightly hitting somthing. (not normal)
: I dought anything serious

: : I've only had my M Roadster about a week but I've noticed that ever since I've gotten it from the dealer it makes a Ticking noise while I'm driving and after I shut the car off (for a few minutes).
: : I'm not sure if it's just because it's a new car or because something is wrong.
: : I don't remember my 2.8 making that noise.
: : It sounds like it's coming from underneath the car and it makes like a 'tick' and a 'tack' kind of sound.

: : Anyone else experienced that?
