My Ride: 330XI
Weird 'Click' Sound on/off Throttle.

Hello there,

I tried searching for this problem via Fanatics and Google and came up short.
I have a 330XI with the 5-speed manual trans @ 130K miles - I've had the car for just over two years. No real mods aside from the golf-tee, a K&N filter, a rebuilt DISA valve, and a Dyanvin head unit as it's my daily.

Just today, I noticed a weird click sound that seems to come from the transmission.. ONLY in gear and at the very beginning of the gas pedal's throw. I just want to clarify, that it's NOT a rear-end clunk. I have that too, my rear diff bushings are junk.
What I'm talking about sounds like a mechanical click, like a loud relay. I could be in any gear, rolling at 1,000 rpms and BARELY touch the throttle - there will be an audible *click* and when I let off the throttle, there's another audible *click*.

The car has to be moving in order for it to click. I don't currently have a friend available to help me diagnose. Has anybody experienced this? What could it be?

Thank you so much in advance!

*EDIT* Upon further analysis, you can feel a slight vibration from the click in the shifter. I guess this just confirms that it's coming from the transmission - but not exactly sure what it could be.
