First time post, great board, loads of info for someone like me new to the e90.
I have a 2006 325i with 38000 miles and last week I heard the ticking noise, luckily dealership isn't to far.
I drove it in and the lead tech verified and I now have an appt. to get the problem fixed.
My question is this, the problem has not returned since (although the temp is 32 out!).
Do you guys think it is worth it to have this repair done as the car seems to drive very smooth, I really don't know much about engines and as a previous member asked can this degrade the quality of the engine seals etc.?
Thanks in advance for any advice anyone may have for me.
