hi everyone. i'm new in this forum and i hope someone can give me some advise re: my problem with my 325i '06 model. bought this car last July '06 nad was very happy with the performance of this car until a couple of months later. i started noticing some ticking noise in the engine. i thought it was just because of the engine being cold because it usually happens when i first start the car in the morning and usually goes away after awhile. but it became more often and sometimes continues even after driving for awhile. i took it to the dealer, and they said they didn't hear anything so it must be nothing serious. last month my friend heard the ticking noise and told me it's not normal, and for me to have it check again because it sounds like a lifter is knocking. took it back again to the dealer which is about 1 1/2 hr away and when i got there and after they checked it, they said they didn't hear anything again. told them that maybe i'll just drop it off a night before so they can just start it an the morning so maybe they can hear it then, but the guy said that it's just normal. is it normal for this car to have that ticking noise? has anybody experienced this kind of problem in their car? thank you in advance.
