noisy ticking engine - 2006 330i sedan

Really frustrated right now.
Been having periodic engine noise, which seems to be getting worse.
Of course, I take it & leave it at the dealership, & it won't make the noise.
Sounds to me like a lifter ticking, or an exhaust leak.
Embarrasingly noisy!! As you can imagine, especially leaving when people are standing outside the car. Nothing like getting ribbed for your $45K car sounding like a 1974 Isuzu.
I have no idea what it is, or could be?
& neither does the dealership, unfortunately.
Anybody dealt with this on this particular engine?
Any input would be greatly appreciated.
