Question about 2003 BMW 325
You can try a thicker oil. But it sounds like a valve lifter may be going bad. Try an additive to see if it makes any difference. May be that the pump did not pump the oil right away. Run the car for a while . See how it sounds.If the ticking gets worse it is probobly one of the lifters.

Castrol have developed EDGE 5W-30 in co-operation with the VW Group. This oil sets new standards in the industry in regards to cleanliness of the engine, thereby reducing harmful emissions and subsequent damage to the environment.
The technology in this oil also reduces long term blocking thereby prolonging the life of the diesel particulate filter.
Castrol EDGE 5W-30 is equally suitable for gasoline and diesel vehicles where performance specifications VW 504 00 and 507 00 are demanded.
In addition to its cleaning properties, EDGE 5W-30 antiwear technology provides strong protection for modern FSI, TDI and turbocharged engines.
EDGE 5W-30 is also approved for use in modern BMW and Mercedes gasoline and diesel engines including those equipped with a DPF that require BMW Longlife -04 or MB-Approval 229.51.
