Does anyone else experience the same problem and does anyone know a solution to this problem?
Possibly warranty with BMW?

I apologize if this is a repost of same topic, but I could not find it by searching on 1M section.
Just make sure it is a flywheel noise and not something else.

Is it worse with the AC on? What does it sound like, a bunch of loose screws and nuts in side the transmission?

If noise is excessive, perhaps the spring mechnism is wornout, which requires the complete flywheel to be replaced.
