I previously had my car checked out at BMW Monrovia, I had nothing to do this weekend so decided to drop the car off at Shelly BMW over the weekend because I'm still in denial that the noise is normal. Got a call from the service advisor from Shelly earlier today that the noise has been fixed, so I'm going to pick up my car later to see the noise has been eliminated. Will update you guys later tonight.

That has a relatively deep tone and seems to sound exhaust system related. Might indeed be normal. The IS exhaust is quite different from the regular 335i and I'm sure you have heard the cool gurgle when you step off the gas after acceleration. You should hear some of the noises I have coming from 335IS ... far far worse than you have posted! According to BMW service, also normal (as always).

Just got my dct IS finally. Love it! It also makes this feint pulley or idler sound when sitting at idle. Has there been any further intel on this?

Can't access the sound files, although I can say that every noise my IS makes makes me want to cream my pants.
Time is the most valuable commodity; you never know how much you have and you can't buy any more.

Coming from an E46 to a new car I thought it would be smoother

I was able to hear the sound click on a previous page but not the original thread starter. The only thing I hear on mine is typical BMW valve noise like it doesn't have enough oil but its full. I've been keeping an "ear" out for any noises like the sound clip but my car only has 120 miles on it. Everything appears normal so far.

Also seems like a BMW thing that the engine bay runs very hot. It was raining the other day and steam was coming off the hood, looked weird compared to cars around me.

DCT is all right. I wish they had a little more control over wheel slippage like a sport 1 and 2 button. At this rate I'll be changing tires every year.
