Can metallic bits come off the lifters? My -08 330i makes very similar noise. I took it the bmw maintenance shop for oil change, and they found some metal all
the way in the oil filter. The car feels perfectly fine to drive, no any cranking just fine, and the ticking noise goes away completely when properly revved/warmed up. My car has 160tkm on the clock.



Also ticking goes with rpms like in this video.

It's strange that only some cars suffer from this.

I have a very early EURO build 330i, 12/2004 production, originally used as a press car. In the 16k miles I've owned it (total 121k) I have never heard the ticking, even after a few weeks of only short 9 mile each way commutes. Though I do generally push the engine hard in the last few miles of each trip once it's warmed up.
