    I think Iíve narrowed down the ticking sound Iíve been bitching about since installing the Valeo SMF clutch kit as being the throwout bearing, and Iím trying to confirm. The ticking sound has gotten worse in the last few months so I need to address it soon. I assume I just got a bad bearing, or Valeoís QC isnít great for that part, because Vas described a similar sound.
    I would think so, yes...

    Just finished my first autocross that had several long sweeping turns and was getting an awful knock after runs. I let it sit for 20 mins and added half a quart of oil and it settled out, but would come back after every run. I assume it was an issue of oil starvation since it went away after some time, so

    1. Does that sound like oil starvation to you kids and

    2. Am I gonna have to baffle this bitch up?

    Edit: nvm it's normal even with the extra half quart

    Knocking is not normal, but loud ticking is. Yes, it is indeed oil starvation, and happens to a variety of BMW models. Some people say the trick is to pour an extra half to one whole quart in over full to mitigate it, but makes some people uncomfortable doing so.

    That is one of the reasons I don't auto-x anymore.
