did anyone see this article:

[take a look at the feb 2007 issue of automobile magazine. read the bottom of page 108. their staff is running a bmw 330i as a long-term test car and they encountered some serious valve clatter at around 23,600 miles. here's what they wrote:

...what started as a faint valvetrain tick on cold start-up quickly grew into loud valve clatter throughout the rev range, and our up-until-now flawless bmw currently sits at the dealer awaiting the arrival of a new intake camshaft, rocker arms, and an intermediate shaft. we're not yet sure what caused the failure, but we look forward to getting the full story once the car is bolted back together... ]
