Please help. I have an 07 530xi that is about a year old with only 3500 miles. When the car is started cold their is a valve ticking noise that lasts for sometime, baically until the engine warms up. I read an article in this months automobile magazine on a long term test on a 330. They had the same problem which escalated and required major repair to the engine. Something about poor lubrication. Is this noise normal or should I be concerned?

Some light ticking at cold start is supposedly normal but loud ticking after warm up should not occur.
