There is plenty of info about this in the forum.
Thanks GoRomeo.

Oil is only 2500 miles old (replaced in May of this year). I've read quite a bit about the lifter problem with these engines, even before I picked the car up in April. My impression was that the lifter problem was more or less limited to early runs of the E90 series. That said, mine was first on the road in June of 2010.
