2003 Boxster S Hydraulic lifter noise until warm-up


Vehicle Information: Model (Boxster, Boxster S,Cayman, Cayman S): Boxster S; Year: 2003; Engine (type, size, modifications): 3.2; Total Mileage: 45,000; Transmission: Manual;

I drove a 2003 Boxster S, 45,000 miles, with noisy lifters. They quieted down after the oil was pumped up. I was also told that the day before, the oil/filter was changed and Mobil 1 was added. I assume it was the correct grade since this dealer sells many Porsches.I also know that an engine with dirty oil, earlier in life can cause the lifters to be noisy. Are noisy lifters in the S common, is it normal and something not to concerned about or should I consider that the car, a lease, not have been well maintained.Any insight you can provide would be appreciated.
