My bmw has started making a clicking or clanging noise while driving accompanied by vibration especially when I start to move from a stop. The sound is metallic like steel to steel and sometimes like something is hitting the floorboard in the rear seat area once it gets going the noise stops. While on the freeway I notice a slight vibration but no noise.

Do you
have the same problem?
Yes
No

Driveshaft is probably the source, have it inspected straightaway.
