Z4 35is valve tapping engine noises heard inside the cabin

When we first got our car, I noticed after a few days of driving it, there was a slight ticking sound inside the cabin. It's intermittent but it's definitely there. But I can't quite define it. Sometimes I think it's valve tapping and then sometimes I think it might be something else. Does anybody else experience noises that are similar to valve tapping in there the Z4?

22,000 miles on my 2011 35is, not a single problem (except rear tires gone in 12K miles )

Take it to the dealer and keep us posted.
