Whoever said dont worry about it.. Is wrong. Wether it's fuel injectors.. Or your lifters.. Both will cause damage to the engine if not treated immediately therefore effecting longitivtiy.
My story; I had an 01 330ci. I had lifter noise for 6 months that I thought was just a belt. Turns out I was really low on oil but had no clue at all. I was so concerned with what damage I may have some to my car that I sold it.
