Doesn't sound too tappy in the video mate...was the engine quite cold on the vid?...I'd check it after driving as the type r do take a while to warm up sometimes can sound a little tricky before fully warm...do you notice a tapping when driving?

Yeah that's warm there, only yesterday I noticed how loud it was. I had radio off sat at traffic lights and could hear it inside. I'll take it for a drive in a Sec and get another video and put it on here

Be sure to establish that it is the engine bay that the noise is coming from and not the manifold/cat.....

Just gave it some abuse (sticking to speed limits) and seems to quieter now hmmm! But going book it on for valve clearance anyway seeing as no evidence of them ever being done previous to me owning her

Decent enough oil then. Id look at changing the oil whenever its done 5/6k or a year. I'm currently on the new castrol edge 0w30 C3, oil and filter from dealers.

But yea get it booked in for the clearances and report back.
