Any 325/330 drivers WITHOUT the Metallic ticking noice?

As the car gets older, and the warranty comes to an end, are there any drivers out there that do NOT have had the metallic ticking noise from the engine? I had it a couple times during the winter period last year, the dealer did the bleed procedure and so far it did not return. I read up on the Metallic ticking noise sticky as soon as there is a new posting, and read most of the previous 37 pages. I am worried about the future when the car is out of warranty and the ticking returns. I own the car and am building a LTR with my vehicle, so it needs to last w/o ridiculous $8k repairs that may be a designer error/material tolerance and I cannot do anything about. I know a lot of people face this issue by reading the sticky; I do not know how big is the other group who has no issues??? Also, for those who had the cylinder head replaced, did it fix the problem?
