Not had this car long but have an issue I just can't solve. Its a 328i Sport Auto.

Often it makes a sound like someone has put a piece of plastic in the spokes of a bike, like a clicking tapping noise.

Its speed related, very noticeable when moving slowly, seems to go away or get quieter when doing 30mph etc
Does it in neutral and with engine off
Worse when cold gets better as it warms
Gets much quieter when turning right
The sound is coming from under centre console/drivers footwell.
On the odd occasion the gearstick will wobbly/move in time to the noise when going really slow <10mph.

I have had all the wheels off and cannot see or feel where it might be coming from. The car has only done 68K so much of it is very tight and clean.

Any ideas folks?

Those were the two things I thought of, just have no idea how to check them. Also, I'm not going underneath it without a ramp. Just really didn't want to spend any money on it as I just bought it to sell on. arg! thanks
