Same here, if too much TQ is applied to the filter cap it's not going to crush the filter, the lip on the cap will bottom out on the filter housing before you crush the filter. anyway... last week I blew an oil cooler line on my N54, while under the hood fixing that I observed that same noise that yours made. I changed my oil the other day, so now that I just read this I had to go check, sure enough.. the noise is gone also. I guess I'll have to pay more attention in a couple thousand miles and see if it starts making the noise again.
