Help with car noise

Took the M3 out for a drive today and everything was running beautiful. I came home parked it for about 2-3 hours and then started it up and heard a weird noise, similar to a bad release bearing but it didn't go away when i pressed or depressed the clutch.. I got the clutch replaced @ bmw in july and the car has been fine ever since, just some mild tranny chatter but BMW said it was normal. When i accelerate the noise goes from a clunking/jingle noise to a winding so i am assuming it's some type of bearing? i'm very sure that it's coming from the tranny. any help would be great.. should i take it back to bmw and have it checked under warranty?

they better not... after they did the clutch job i went and picked the car up. i noticed that there was tranny chatter which was not there before the release bearing went out(i decided to do the whole clutch since the job is basically labor). I took it back the next day and the tech took it for a drive with me in it and we listened to the chatter and they said it was normal for m cars.

so i took the car to bmw toronto today and the noise was there on the whole ride down. i entered the service area and shut the car off, waited for a tech to come do a road test with me. about 10 mins later he started the car up and the noise was gone.. what the hell could be causing this?
