Noise at Idle? Flywheel?

OK, so I have had my M2 for a few days now, love it!

One thing I do not love is the noise at idle, my car is a DCT and when at idle there is a loud clattering noise coming from the engine bay.

I assume its the flywheel.

Cant say I noticed it on the day of collection.

Anyone else notice this noise?

Do these cars have a dual mass flywheel?

Yeah, I saw that thread. Glad it appears to be normal and not anything more sinister!

I'll still get them to check it out when it goes in for the running in service.

Just a shame that it has to sound like that.

Anyone else notice this noise?

Most people don't know this but, that's actually the car saying buy a manual next time.

I have that sound... BMW changed some tensioner and alternator cause the sound seemed to come out from the inside of it but still the same sound after a week... They are waiting for BMW indications to solve it... it is really annoying...

I agree, it is a shame it's so noisy, hopefully someone can find whats causing it, I've sort of got used to it and hearing other M2's it seems the norm but would be nice if it can be rectified.

Please keep us updated if they do find and are able to fix the source of the chatter.
