FPR is unlikely in my opinion as the symptoms are intermittent. It sound electrical issue to me. So DME may be at fault. I would try to go through all the connectors you can see in the engine bay and...

Yes, I have read that new lifters can get bad quickly. But not sure the lifters are the issue. It may be that lifter bore ware get worse once new lifters are used as they alter the ware pattern of...

My believe is that the cause of the noise is that the lifters do not get enough oil to pump up. It is particular so at idle. As you have changed the lifters probably the lifters are not the cause....

Not aware that late S2 have any stiffer springs then early ones. My one has 24mm rear torsion bar while the M030 version has 25.5mm. This means the rear is stiffer which also means that Porsche will...
