: common situation known as the 'diesel M3' in the M3 fraternity!

: the culprit is the hydraulic chain tensioner

If I were you I would get that replaced right away, I had the same problem with mine and after a while it started making noise while driving, I was lucky you might not be, spend the money and get the whole thing replaced, and while you are at it stick a performance cam gear in there.
