Only test drove the car so far. When they brought the car over for me to drive and the engine was idoling I heard the ticking noise. The salesman said its normal in the GLK !

The modern engines do click louder as the injectors are quite loud .this sounds quite normal to be honest .

Ok just its just an annoyance and nothing to worry about. Thank you

Yes just slightly louder the newer engines fun direct injection which requires bigger more powerful injectors and from what you describe sounds pretty normal
