Unfortunately it's the recording. I can hear it live obviously and it does not sound different than the usual. Furthermore, a friend of mine has a 120d with the same engine and they sound alike. It's not the sound that's distinguishing...it's the unusual vibrations in the clutch and the gear knob. If I happen to leave the door open...you'll literally see it shake. Well fingers crossed tomorrow I find out and hope, or wish, that it's an inexpensive fix.
