I made sure to utilize the search engine on both this forum and the other and even a facebook group, no one has had this issue, I have an appointment set up with the dealer next week, it only happens at idle and I just did my introduction thing and read the rules thank you for informing me to do so, you are right worrying will not fix the issue but here is a video of it happening, when it is not happening the car is in normal mode at the beginning of the video, where it begins happening is when the car is in N mode mid way through the videoWelcome to the forum. Please, give yourself and members the opportunity of an introduction and take the time to read the rules of the forum as well;

Your best course of action is to take it to your dealer and have them look at it. That's what you have a warranty for, it's their problem not yours.
The ticking could be anything from the high pressure fuel pump to a possible exhaust leak. Otherwise, it's impossible to determine anything and this is not a prominent issue with any VN or i30N. I can't recall a particular discussion regarding such and issue.
Posting a video or audio might to determine if there's actually an issue or just a normal sound. Additionally, Is worrying going to help fix a possible issue?
Yes stock exhaust and I’ll definitely try that, to me it seems more like it is coming from the right of the car then the driver sideFirst guess would be an exhaust rattle or possibly heatshield. If you walk around the car can you pinpoint roughly where it's coming from? Also, can you hear it in Normal if you lightly step on the gas to bring the revs to 950rpm? Last thing I'd try is a couple Custom changes to see if one causes the sound but the other doesn't. Try Engine in Normal but Exhaust in Sport+ then try Engine in Sport+ but exhaust in Normal (and Sport).
I doubt the Engine setting will affect it (other than raising rpm), might be a loose exhaust valve. This is the stock exhaust?
I did not know there was a knock software update, what does it do? And I have an aem intake but that is all
The ticking actually seems to become louder when warmed upI was thinking exhaust leak too? Does the ticking go away or not as loud when warmed up? The only sort of ticking I have in my car is from the high pressure fuel pump but it is not like that. Let us know what you find?
