    my car only ticks when the A/C is turned on...and even then its only sometimes..when i say tick i mean more like a water drop hitting a hot hot surface and making that hissing noise..but really loud... anyone know what that could be? is that normal? ...and also.. since i dont hear any ticking coming from my motor...do yall think my car is fine? or should i take it in and tell them to fix it...? then again..theres nothing to fix unless its a really silent tick..?

    the bmw started at 30 k, 1k before the warrantee expired. but they blamed it on an overrev and redflagged the vin anyway.

    how many miles do you have on your car now

    Tick, Tick, Boom?

    Yes, I have the infamous ticking as well... sitting in the driveway, and even waiting at a red light... out of no where the damn thing will tick, tick, tick... sooo annoying! Anyhow, I am going to the dealer tonight after work, and I will def. bring this up as well as my baby chokes when I try to start her after a "short" drive... anyone else experience this?
    I never thought anything of the ticking noise, although I do here it more often when I have the AC on... she also loses some power when I have the pedal down and she ticks... I can feel the hesitation....

    What I want to know is whether this is an annoyance or if it affects performance or reliability. If it's an annoyance then I can live with it.

    I have the same thing. I was trying to come up with a good way to describe the sound, but I think your description is very accurate. I hope its just the AC condenser.

    is this a loud tick? I mean there are lots of ticks from the engine. The injectors tick.
