Take it back to the Dealer you bought it from and tell him to fix the problem at his cost.

Just an update on this, when engine is cold it's sounds normal... So i suspect wrong viscosity oil...

Doesn’t sound good at all, I initially thought it was a diesel engine!

It may be worth changing the oil and filter but I’m not confident it will sort the issue.

Hi,

Check and adjust the valve clearances. If the gaps are too big, the valves sound like your car's.

Change the engine oil and filter, make sure you choose an oil to the manufacturer's viscosity and SAE specifications.
