      It’s the exhaust. When the car is running it expands, when its cooling it does the opposite.

      The clicking is the exhaust taking its original shape.

            I don't think my ticks like that. Maybe it has something to do with the miltek tuning, i.e. the exhaust heats more up than normally?!?!

              could also be the brakes. mine seem to make a similar noise when ive been driving quickly. the discs get hot.

              whatever it is it will be a hot part on the car cooling down once youve got out.

                    you must have noticed how much the miltek expands, the vxr on the tail pipe thingy.

                    well all the ticking and knocking is everything contracting back to its normal size.

                    all cars do it to some extent. nowt to worry about at all.
