OK, so it appears we have come around full circle and we now know what your concern is (valve noise) and I think you have figured out that there is nothing to worry about. Again, with the 930 valve train, you are hearing metal against metal. That is how it was designed. The only thing that reduces that noise is the oil and the expansion of the metals when the engine gets warm/hot.

Since the engine was reworked 1,700 miles ago, now is a good time to have two things checked. Check the head bolt torque and have the valves adjusted. These two things are normally done at about this many miles after engine work.

With that being said, even though these two items are very basic, I would be very wary of taking your car to the two mechanic's you mentioned. If you haven't already, let us know where you live and let somebody from here refer you to somebody else.
