Whistle Rattle on startup

Hmm, lately I've had a rattle, not very loud, on startup. I've been digging through the forum and most folks seem to say it's the vanos, but that's a v8 issue, not a 3.slow issue. I'll try and post a video tomorrow, but I'm wondering if it's the disa, as I've seen on some forums that it can cause a rattle on startup, but the rattle only lasts about a second.
Motivation can change what you do, but inspiration can change who you are.

id venture the vanos too, its not super common on the 3.0 (2.slow is the VW!) but it doesn happen. I had a Z3 that had that problem too, chased around lots of different things, ended up the vanos was rattling ever so slightly! and only for a few seconds while idling.
be something worth looking into! (Bessian makes a great kit!)
