Just want to add my car to the list, 2008 328i coupe. I bought it last month used with 26k on it. If I drove it across town after sitting for a while and got out, this is what it sounded like (taken with my phone):
My BMW dealer was phenomenal in handling it. The records showed that the bleed down procedure had already been done, so they put in new lifters and kept it for a few days to make sure it didn't need a head... So far the lifters seem to have worked for me.
