Knocking top end. 146ti

Hello forum, im a first timer looking for some sound advice from people in the know about 146 ti.
Whilst joining a motorway i pushed my car until the rev limiter kicked in before changing to 3rd gear. As it did, i had a massive drop in power and the top end started to knock like a black cab!! Its ok to drive below 2000 revs. Has anyone here got any advice or could possibly diagnose this problem??
