hey all. bought a 2000 model 330i a few weeks ago.
The lifters are pretty noisy, from cold and when warm.
Soon as i bought it i fully serviced it with genuine bmw parts/oil etc. flushed the oil aswell.
The noise has improved but still very loud.
anyone reccomend any additives? it has done 175,000miles....

You sure its the lifter noise?

Many people mistaken disa noise,cold injector noise for a lifter tick.
