    My wife's BMW 318CI has timing chain rattle on the first start of the day. It's only done 65K miles and nothing to worry about as the sound is only there before the oil in pressure has built up.
    If the chain continues to rattle long after the pressure light has extinguished, a new timing chain is required.
