My CTR likes to make a groaning noise..

It happens on a journey home.. about 4 minutes in.. and always on the same stretch. What happens is i come down a hill, stop in traffic (on the uphill but not that steep!) I crawl from stationary.. every time I pull off.. the car groans??? I thought it was the brake pads rubbing from when I came to a stop but its not.. Im worried as it sounds like its coming from the engine!

Its a 57plate with 13k.. and only used twice a week as my BMW's the main car. What could it be.. cold engine.. Does anybody elses do this?

mine does this too, but only if it hasn't moved overnight and has only started when I got my rear pads changed so guessing they just need run in.
