todays rattle

I was sitting in my x1 while parked and motor running trying to get my I-Phone to sink with bluetooth via audio. (no luck) and my motor was idling around 16-17 rpm and a rattle sound or rattle/judder vibration sound (the car didn't shake) started up from like the motor area right below the windshield wipers like under the hood....it would stop when i put the car in D and then start to drive. When I would come to a stop the sound would start back up. Also is it normal for the car to want to take off when the brake is depressed as I almost ran into a car that stopped in front of me as my foot just slipped off the petal and the car took off kinda quick. other than that the car seem fine. I will say it does not vibrate when you first start the motor it happens about 10 min after you start the car.

I'll have mine two weeks this Wednesday and have not experienced any rattles or any of the forward lunging you're speaking of. One thing I noticed from my prior two BMWs, if there was a noise or rattle, it was always due to something I left in the back seat, or glove box, etc., and not the fault of the car.
