I've had my '07 328i for 2 months now and before opening this thread for the first time, reading page 1 and the last 2 pages of this post, I thought the ticking was a normal hiccup as a cold engine start. I'm at 45,000miles, past my 4 years new car warranty but I still have my CPO and maintenance until late 2013. With the link provided by DL, I am definitely going to make sure if my parts need to be improved or not. I've read into this thread for 5 minutes, what else have I missed other than checking to fit new parts or anything specific to tell my service advisor on this issue? I know
but I'd rather read right now info than start from page 1 to page 91 in one night.
