So, anyone have thoughts on this? Could it be that BMW continued to install faulty engine heads after 11/31/2008? Or worse, that the redesigned head is not the final fix ?

NOTE: I'm thinking of purchasing an used e90...hence the concern/question...

He could've been referring to a different noise who knows. We would only be sure if he posted a video. He also said it was very faint. The real valve tick is anything, but faint. It sounds like hammering.
