i just bought my first bmw today.
a 2008 323i black on black 47k clean etc... ive been hunting for a bimmer 6 months now reading these forums day in day out. i was avoiding the earlier models due to a known ticking sound in the engine an sure enough i think i just bought one by accident. thought the 08's had it fixed f%&*. does anybody know what the deal is with the ticking coming from the lifters is and what kind of incredibly painful journey im about to embark on. its just on start up and goes away im under factory wrranty still but never dealt with bmw. other than that totally impressed and excited to join the nation, definitly an upgrade from my vw.
thanks hope someone can point me in the right direction
