Lifter ticking fixed?

Hey everyone, does anyone know if the ticking noise from the lifters was ever fixed for the 2011 328i models? I did a search but couldn't find anything about it being fixed.

Yes they should not tick. There was an updated part # released for early models prone to this problem. I'm sure the newer models were either redesigned or build with the updated part #.

I just didn't see a definitive answer on when it was fixed, I read about people who still had ticking after BMW swapped the heads and lifters.

There's a BMW TSB issued sometime before 2009, reputedly. Sorry! You're on your own for discovery....but HERE is some tech info.

There is no definitive answer.

There were a couple of fixes but none of them have been verified as
solid works every time it won't come back fixes.
