Need help ticking noise from suspension?

My 1M makes some weird constant clicking/ ticking noise while turning hard right at mid to high speed.
It sounds similar to spinning those lottery/prize wheels

I had the same noise in my 135i but that was in both directions.

Im going for my next service shortly so i thought id get some expert advice here(as always! thankyou 1addicts!) before trying to explain those clueless idiots(sorry but i really realllyyy hate those guys) at bmw agmc dubai(from past experience i know what they will say.....Thats Normal)

Most probably your differential. Quite a lot have been replaced under warranty... Keep us updated !!

If happens at low speeds at full lock, it's probably your LSD. If you hear it coming from the front wheels while cornering hard at speed, i would suggest you retorque your front wheels to 88ft/lbs. This clicking sound from the front wheels seems to be a common problem. Retorquing the lugs seems to solve the problem. You can expect to do this every couple months or when the clicking returns (and it will).
