    N52 engine sound help

    I have a 2011 128i conv and hear a tap sound that increases a bit on higher idle. Engine appears strong. I have attached a soubd clip to help a bit as my description is weak. Thx for any help.

    Edit: file upload not working yet

    That’s bad!! I’m betting you’ve got a bad rod bearing. Sorry.
