Like a lifter. Definitely a metallic noise.
Funny how the dealership looks at you like you're CRAZY!
Doesn't help when the ol' 330i decides to be quiet when the Dr. is listening under the hood.
I'm going to call the dealership & tell them about your issues & the fix.
See what they say about it??
My car is there right now.

Thanx man!

Please report back on the dealer's response. When I mentioned it to them, they acted like it was normal and showed me how to "bleed" the engine in order to stop the ticking.
