(sorry for the barrage of new car owner type posts I am sure it will be over soon :) )

There's valve noise at idle that I cant seem to ignore. Its pretty noticable. Not only at cold startup, even after warm up/hot engine and fresh oil change.

I noticed its more obvious with the plastic vanity cover off and it does have some sound absorbing material under it, so is this noise to be expected ? or do I have a impending problem that needs to be corrected ?

How could an 35i F15 have "valve noise'? It ain't a '57 Chevvy, but it has a Valvetronic variable lift valve train, a whole bunch more complicated, but not noisy.

Wow. An entire web page full of downloadables and installers. Haven't seen one like that for 10 years. Too dangerous for my taste.
It was a good use of my VLC that I have had for many years but seldom gets used.

What do you mean ? I uploaded 1 file. and it should just start playing when you click on download.
What are you seeing ?

anyway long story short - question was that is this much noise normal or not.
