Compared to my 9000 rpm Rotary RX8, yes it does rev to a slow 6000 rpm :)

The exhaust note does not sound beefy enough , but a good aftermarket exhaust , catalyctic converter will soon change the note even possibly get more power .

Do i hear tappet noise in the third video ? or is that the turbo spooling up ?

Cheers

Whatever it is it doesnt sound great my mothers old sowing machine sounded better , BMW have aluminium engines and they certainly dont sound like a can of rattling marbles .

I am not trying to be difficult but thats not a sound that would inspire confidence in an engine , hopefully its a one of loose tappets situation .

True, but it's a smaller engine so it's more prone to make noise. Not sure though, it could be anything. It's hard to tell from the video.
