Valve tick

I have a 1998 bmw 740il. I hear a grinding sound sometimes when the car starts. And hear a tapping sound when engine is running. Other than that the car is running great and no lights on except check brake light info sometimes.
Every input is appreciated.

In future, please start your own thread. You have a different model then the original poster.

The tapping sound could be a number of issues, including a stuck lifter.
