Rattling in first gear

The Clubbie is in the hospital (Seattle MINI).
When the clubbie is cold, in first gear, accelerate to 10-15mph, there is a bad metal clunky sound.
No updates yet as to what the cause is. I will post an update later.

Good thing it's happening now while you're not on the road.

no doubt. The noise has been going on for about a month and someone told me the car needs to warm up... I finally decided that is a wrong diagnosis and took it in to the professionals. I mean, I didn't hear anyone else's car making crunchy noise and "Needing to Warm up" come on... the car is fairly new with low mileage. LOL

Day 1- they put oil in the car. It was a quart low.
Day 2- the one quart of oil didn't fix it. They are tearing the car apart. Said, it will late next week probably, they are unsure what the cause is.

I am driving a red loaner
