Hi i believe your car has hydraulic tappets in it and sometimes the oil needs changing and then it stops. It very sounds like the tappets to me when cold and then when rev-ed up and a hot engine it goes away iam i right.

What i would do is have a oil and filter change to see if this will stop it before you go for the noise coming into the car i would think its because sound travels and theres not much between you and the engine hope this helps

It could be your power steering pump but if you rev the car does the ticking tapping get faster if so i would say its the tappets but if it does not get faster i could be your power steering pump at a guess
Currently in Donald's garage:
2005 Mercedes Benz C200 Classic SE Kompresser & 1998 Fiat Cinquecento Fire Sporting,some may say i could do far better?,i say i could do far worse.
