Yep..
The dirtier/thicker your oil is, the longer it takes for your lifters/tappets to fill with oil..

Also on my AU1 XR8 there is a ticking sound that comes from the left hand front gaurd when it's cold.

But thats's something to do with the anti polution and nothing to worry about, it's very common.

I heard an AU V8 Fairmont doing exactly the same thing the other day.
