    It's localized, as far as I can tell, to the top front of the engine, right by where the VANOS is.

    M5 and M54 have totally different Vanos setup and my rattle was caused by oil draining from the Vanos chamber.
    Only time I heard Vanos rattle on M54 is when you hold rpms in 1.5-2-3k range.

    I'm curious as to the grinding noise you mention that only lasts momentarily upon start up... could it be a pulley/tensioner? Will wait for video.

    Tapping for a few seconds as lifters get oil? Mines always done it
