IMHO it sounds as if the engine didn't have time to warm up, some knocking, but not that unusual. Repeat: IMHO.

Mine makes that sound in the same setting. The mic picked it up well. Can you hear it over the radio at Volume #10?

I have heard that same noise from mine when creeping in first. But very rarely. Thats the part I don't get, it's intermittant. I would love to know what it is, because it sound horrible. "Normal trans chatter" really? All these years and still in the dark with this car, amazing!
