    hey and welcome to the site mate.

    are these engines not chain driven rather than timing belt ? it isnt slack by any chance is it

    hard to tell with knocking noises as could be a whole host of stuff. is it from the top or bottom ? all the time or only on idle, part throttle, full throttle

    Is it a tapping, intermittent bang or regular knocking? Is it definately the engine or the gearbox?

    Obvious things, are all the engine covers and hose/wire clips secure?

    Welcome to TorqueCars, i've moved this to our 5 series forum where it will get more attention than if left in the welcome forum.

    What sort of knocking? Where from? Could be anything from engine mounts to big ends.
