Click Click Click, And some ticking too

Now correct me if i'm wrong, but I believe the N54 shouldn't sound like this:

To my knowledge the overall ticking sound is normal. The clicking is part of the DI/injector noise, and if you ever run the engine without the top beauty cover, you will even hear the ticking inside the car.

If I were to nitpick however, at the start there is a higher pitched clicking on top of the background noise which I can't say my car makes, and I'm not sure what I'm hearing at 16 seconds in. Very hard to diagnose from the sound though, at least for me. Your car doesn't show any performance problems or throw any codes right?

Good to know, I was wondering if it had something to do with direct injection as I've never had one before. I know relatively nothing about them. Thanks guys!

Yup no codes or anything. I'm just being overly worried about nothing haha
