The colder it is, the louder the noise and the longer it lasts. Dealer says it is normal. Time will tell.

It's made the noise from day two, especially in cold weather. Lasts for several minutes. Sounds like tappets when lubrication is insufficient. Dealer examined, claims nothing wrong, just " a harmless characteristic of the car".
