My car is going into the mechanic on May to check this issue and for some other things but i was wondering if anybody else has expeirnced it.

I have an esienmann exhaust and sometimes i hear a rattling type chugging sound. This only happens when the car is stationary, it dissapers after driving for a minute.

Is this normal has anybod else expericned it i have a c280 sport so was wondering if anybody else is expericnecing it.

see this link to the trators forum where they talk about it as well:

Not the same car so not sure if this is applicable but mine makes similar noises as you describe at low revs.

as per the above thread ive found it has extra casing to draw heat to the catalyst which means the outer bit can be really rattly/disintegrated but the exhaust still doesnt blow so u dont get the really loud noises as u wd when exhausts disentegrate on a normal car
