Exclamation Suggestion 07 328xi

I need ideas on what to do next I'm getting this ticking/knocking sound when engine is warmed up. At cold start engine sounds perfect I changed all Hydraulic valves, flushed out engine with diesel, changed oil went from 5w-30 to 0w-30 and back to 5w-30 it didn't do anything, I bought all new spark plugs didn't do one thing, I checked rod bearings it had some scratches around the bearing shells but it looks normal. Don't know what to do now, any suggestions of what could cause this problem?

This is what it sounds like

before even doing all that, wouldn't it be better if you asked BMW tech to troubleshoot the car ? its only like $100 bucks at dealer.

I did that Dealer couldn't find any problems. This is a used engine I think
I bought it with this problem, I could easily buy another one but I just want to fix it.

The guy I went to I actually know him personally so I get better treatment than most people but he can't figure out the problem

Could this be a VANOS problem?
