Hey Scotty, I hope you're doing well big fan of your channel. I have a 2007 BMW 328i that I bought used from a guy. The car runs almost perfect besides two little problems. The first is that the lifters are pretty noisy but I've been told that it isn't a problem to be really concerned about. Now my second problem is that whenever I drive the car longer than 10 min the car begins to Rattle whenever I accelerate. It only rattles when I'm going between the speeds of 20-50mph. I've been told it could be two problems, a bad torque converter or bad transmission mounts. What are your thoughts about it?

those don't have lifters, the valves are mechanically adjustable, so have that done. Rattling could be the valves too. But if not, Jack the engine up to see if tranny and or engine mounts are broken, you would see it then. Torque converter would require a pro to analyze as in this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pqh1oH8mEqY&t=6s
