Hello
What exactly was your question about this?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
is it something i mention or is it normal annoying sound from that motor i cant change?,it usualy hear at 2000rmp,i i want to not hear that sound.is it possible?
it is something you mention. it is not a normal sound.
it is hard to tell remotely but I would suspect a belt driven component as the cause or possibly vanos related. definitely have it checked by a BMW specialist garage.

sorry i forgot to tell,i changed bobinas and spark plugs,i put beru bobinas instead delphi,i read one guy solved problem with changing bobinas some upgraded type of bobinas?
I think that is very doubtful, but you should be running Delphi.
unless the noise only started when you changed them, there is no reason to expect this is the cause.

there is no difference when i changed bobinas,that guy also changed vanos before,also i dont hear that sound until 10 min of driving,when motor heat up
exactly, there was no difference from the change, so there would be no difference changing them again, as I said. The noise, as far as I can tell from a phone video on youtube, sounds like vanos or something belt driven. the vehicle needs to be checked hands on with the aid of a mechanic's stethoscope to further diagnose.
