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
