I have the same sound in my 2009. Changed to premium gas and the engine got much less noicy, but the noice is still there. And the noice is not coming from the cylinder head. Canīt help you here im kinda in the same situation.

i just got my car from the bmw maintenance and they told me it is normal but after many searching it seems like engine lifter noise because of the head cylinder design , BMW have new cylinder design as the solution for this problem.

Mein Auto: 2012 BMW X6 35i
x6 35i xdrive ticking/clicking engine noise

Hey man I've owned all the x series vehicles. 2012 x1, two 2006 x3's, 2005 x5 and now a 2012 x6. Nd a couple of 328's nd they all sound like that. Idk if the audio isn't picking up the actual rattling and ticking you are talking about but from what I hear, that's pretty normal. I hope this helps.

My N55 2014 X1 xDrive35i has the same tick, I'm still not sure if it's normal or not but I haven't yet been back to the dealer to listen to another 35i or met up with someone with the same engine to listen to theirs.

I've got the same issue, and a possible vaccum leak, but it's too cold to investigate.
