I have a '92 316i, and I'm in a rush to buy an '92 325i. But I've read that if i hear a camshaft noise, something like (tic tic tic...) when the engine is running, I should look for another car. I haven't seen the car yet, but can anyone tell me what do this noise mean? And why is it so bad? A friend of mine have a '93 320i and we suspect that his engine is starting to do that noise...
lifter or valves , is what it sounds like to me. very common on BMW's , does not mean that there is a serious problem or a problem at all. and there is actually something you can add to rid the problem or at least dumb the noise down
