i have just purchased a 1998 535i which has a strange rattling type of noise from underneath the car it seems to coming from approx half way down, it only does this when cold after 10 mins or so it is quiet and everything is fine, i am wondering if it is exhaust/cat type of issue

please help any advise welcome

You will be best to get the car up onto axle stands or a ramp/pit and run the car while someone has a listen, it "could" be the Cat monolith vibrating around or even a heat shield, once warm and expanded it stops
