Hello guys,


I am currently having an annoying issue with my Mini Cooper (1.5-liter 3-cylinder TwinPower Turbo).

When I leave it idling, above all when the air conditioning on, I can spot a strong fluttering noise clearly audible from the tailpipe.
It could be described as an impulsive noise, mainly high frequency content, counting about 20 pulses per second (my car revs at about 900rpm at idle).
I strongly doubt it is generated by the exhaust itself, even if I can hear it from the tailpipe. I think the exhaust is acting just an amplifier, getting this noise directly from the engine where it could be originated...
Did any of you experience this issue? Any idea/thought on what the root cause could be and how can I fix it?
Could it be calibration related (e.g. valve timing or other engine settings)?

Thank you
