Question about Cars & Trucks
Engine performs well but is very noisy on tick over sounds like a diesel
If there is a lot of knocking sensation, then check the engine mountings for security.
Check the engine oil level.
Please report if neither of these were the issue.

the internal combustion of the main valve is most likely either clogged or it has a loose spark plug that is constantly providing a spark without oil. Either that or your break pads have gone bad or just some seats and stuff loose, I'd have it checked on by your nearest professional.

The cam chains have developed slack and are slapping on the cam chain guides which helps prevent the cam chains from popping off in case of slack developing . The chain guides are made of some type of plastic material and develop significant wear.

this is a very common issue with any of the bmws with n52 and n52k engine,as long as oil level is ok and is being changed regularly than than a "blleding proceedure" may solve this problem, when the engine has been running long enough that it is hot run the engine at idle to 4500 rpm for 10 to 12 min to start, if is still present after this attempt again.It has been said that this could take up to 30 min at longest.The reason for the ticking noise is a very tiny air gap in the hva and or lifters, try this and if does not work than the lifters should be replaced, although this noise doesnt really hinder the performance it does take away from driving such a nice car and having a loud noise come from the engine, good luck
