    It's a 1.8 petrol.

    There's no DMF on it.

    At a punt I'd guess it was the phasers cold startup rattle before oil has recirculated from sitting. Lasts anywhere from 1-3 seconds

    If it is that noise, according to the dealer it's normal and only when it makes that noise when the ending has been running is it an issue
