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.

Thanx.

Todd

You need a new camshaft. I got my 2 months ago. Read this thread.

Very interesting!
That's exactly what it sounds like to me..
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!

Todd

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.
