HELP - Clicking noise when accelerate / stop

My vehicle is an 09' 328i coupe and I recently (earlier this week), had the AA tune, PE Exhaust installed, added OEM 19" 313's with 12'mm spacers up front / 15mm spacers in the rear and....

I rolled my window down at the golf club guard gate this afternoon and hear "click, click". Upon pulling away, I hear it again

I decided to drive around the neighborhood to see if it repeats itself each time I stop/start and it does. However, it doesn't do it while driving and is not noticeable in the cabin when the windows are up.

Any ideas??

Do you have something you can capture video/sound with? Would need to hear to get a better idea.

Does it click when you accelerate or slow down even when you're already moving? Might be a guibo.

I get a clicking sound to sometimes.

Attached is a memo.doc. Rename the .doc to .m4a

This sound usually goes away next time I start my car so I haven't looked into the root cause. Driving the car I cannot feel any different when it is making that noise. This audio was taken parked. If I drive you can hear the ticking pretty loud when going at speed.

Just figured this might be the same noise as you.
