knocking sound from valve cover e34 525i 1994

I hear a knocking or ticking noise coming from under my valve cover on my 1994 525i. Could someone tell me what this is please? thanks.

Its probably the valves ticking. From what I understand BMW's are not a lexus type vehicle if your engine ain't ticking then you won't be kicking. lol
