Mein Auto: looking for an M rdstr
The lifter issue is apparently the cause of a "ticking" noise that sometimes occurs when the car is driven on short "errand" type trips. If I drive the car less than a mile then drive it again after cooling the car motor would sometimes "tick".

The top issue is a rubbing against the frame while down. There was a TSB issued for this and I believe it was corrected later in model year.

I would ask the dealer for the complete service history based on the vin. They would know if any or all of the issues were addressed in the past

Both are common addressable issues.

Here is a good page to review the known issues;

( edmunds car site ->car-maintenance -> guide-page.htnl ) in case the link is removed.
