    When starting from cold, there is a distinct loud ticking noise from the engine. After a min of so it quieten downs a little, but can still be heard.

    Using a screw driver to the ear, I found the item circled in white is the culprit. It's attached to a pipe coming from the vapour recover carbon canister. Is it normal / faulty?

    Normal, carbon filter bit ticks on all of them. I thought it was at the back of the engine bay though, might just be on S3s.
