Noisy valves

Engine

I have had my car for 6 months now and it seems either the valves are noisy or the injectors are extremely loud. It has been thru the dealer for the 15K recently with nothing noted by them. It is notable at idle especially with the hard top on. The oil appears clean and is topped off and the car is never thrashed on. Acceleration is normal and their is no oil consumption. This is my second Boxster and the 2000 that I owned previously did not sound like this. They changed the layout of the timing chain in 02 didn't they? Any ideas?
