Angry Click sound, both BMW of SD and Encinitas told me its NORMAL

Hi guys

I did search about this click sound but I couldnt find anything about it.
This is my 07 e92 335i. I have this click sound for 6 months. I have tried BMW of San Diego and BMW Encinitas, they told me its NORMAL(I asked them to try a same car in front of me and this NORMAL sound didnt come out.........Since English is not my native language,I had some problems to tell them how angry I was) I am sure this is not from clutch, but I have no idea where it comes from. When everytime I reverse my car and press the break,this NORMAL sound comes out. This is the video I took this afternoon, I hope u guys will have some ideas. thanks.

sorry guys.......I forgot to mention that the click happens ONLY when I press the break. I am 100% sure its not from shifting and clutch releasing. I have tried 2 07 335 6sp , BMW of SD and Encinitas also tried their cars in front of me.(same driver in their car and my car)BUT........the NORMAL sound only happens on my car. Encinitas told me there is a sound,but TECHNICALLY everything is fine.

The situation is
click only happens one time each direction.

mine does it too..its just the brake pads adjusting themselves in their slots in the caliper...no biggie.

I pulled my wheel off and checked too just to make sure all the bolts were tight.

I also have the same click sound on my car same as you describe i also had it on my STI and yeah it's normal as the brake pads moves abit and hit the calipers where they sit.some cars have it some cars don't try changing your brake pads.

edit: your car is fine.
