so i must ask to the others that have had the rattle and went to the dealer for update, was it only when car was cold and not warmed up?

first time i noticed the rattle i was both happy and sad at the same time...
guys, need your input re the above:
i have slight ticking sound only after morning cold start .... that is the only time i hear the ticking.
do you guys with the loud clanking sound stat off with slight ticking during cold start (only)?

If your car isn't scary - it's just not fast enough !
