    R36 Low milage Noise on startup

    Hi everyone, im looking at buying my first r36. Its a low KM car buying site unseen with a pre inspection report done by a mechanic. He is concerned at the noise below, keeping in mind its a 105000 km car, which had been driven 30 mins to a hour before and the noise lasted up to 5 mins.

    Yeah sounds like it needs chains and guides done.
    Would like to see measuring blocks to confirm.
    The other faults need to know if they are static or intermittent.
    But steering column lock need to replace that or it will leave you unable to drive.
    Alarm horn likely battery has failed and leaked onto the board. Not a big deal can disable it in coding.
    Incorrect immobilizer key is related to the steering column lock. See above.
