E46 330 lifter noise at cold startup

Everynow and then when I start the car from cold, there is 2 or 3 seconds of clanking from the lifters as they pump up. My engine has 30K miles on it, anyone else experienced this? I've had it at the dealer twice and left it overnight, of course each time they started it in the morning they didn't hear anything.
