Focus Mk3 Engine Noise (Uk)

My 2011 1.6 Ti-VCT petrol makes a very worrying metallic tapping sound for about 10-15 minutes after starting.

It seems to be coming form the top end as far as I can tell and is not the injectors as they are a softer tapping sound also present.

Ford garage had the car back twice and say no fault found as nothing showing on computer etc - they say this is normal.

I cant believe a modern car can sound like this without causing damage to the internals as it sounds like a very dry hydraulic tappet or something in the VCT mechanism (solenoids or release pins perhaps).

anyone got any suggestions?

all ti vct do it when the oil is cold it is injector slap and the solenoids once the oil warms and isnt as thick it goes and yep its normal ford covered it up by sticking thick under bonnet felt on
