Just took mine back to the dealer today for my annual low mileage oil change and to have them look into my ongoing lifter noise issue.

I've already had the lifters and then the cylinder head replaced due to noisy lifters, yet the noise has persisted. I showed my SA several videos from the past few months demonstrating it. He's not sure what else they can do for me as the cylinder head was replaced about a year ago. It seemed to solve the problem for the first few months, but by the time winter came around the problem was back. I've only put around 7000 miles on the oil/new cylinder head and have always had oil changes annually at around the same interval.

I hate to say it but even the new cylinder head seems to still have the issue. We'll see what the mechanic finds and what course of action they suggest.
