Help!

I have a 525i 1999 that sort of makes a "tik tik tik" noise for about 30 seconds to 2 mins after i park the car and stop the engine (Or maybe thats the only time i hear it). Is that normal at all? What cud it be? Any help wud be appreciated

Many thanks

is it when you turn the engine off?? if so its probably just your exaust cooling down, metal expands when it gets hot and then shrinks when it cools so it does make a tink sound. kinda like tapping a nail on a tin.

Phew :) Thanks Ron, Thanks Neal....This comes as a relief. I think Ron hit the nail when he said its similar to "Tapping the Nail on the Tin". Its exactly how its sounds when i turn the engine off. Thanks for taking the time to reply guys...Much appreciated
