    Engine Ticking Noise

    I have a 2004 745iL with 75k miles. Lately I have a ticking noise from the engine. It increases with engine speed. When engine warms up the noise is gone. Sound like a lifter noise to me but I don't know if this could happen on a BMW. Any comments or suggestions would be appreciated.

    Are you changing the oil regularly, maybe more often than they tell you to? These valvtronic engines have a lot more crap in the heads to lubricate than the previous engines. Usually lifters quiet very quickly. I'm in the e38 750 myself.
