How serious is tappet rattle?

Scenario, pick up new car, drive 300 miles next day, arrive at destination and tappet rattle, very load and permanent.

Should I just give the car back or is it not too serous and just let them repair it. Dont know when it started on the journey so could have driven 250 miles with it rattling away!!

Thanks for your help!

I have had tappet rattle on my E6 ever since i got it.. Its the Lifters, it comes and goes every say 5 seconds on my car, but recently they have been quite loud.. If your car is brand new, you might be able to go back the garage and get them to service the lifters, its a very labour intensive job. Like I say, you might be able to get em to do it for free.. Dont worrie about blowing the car up though, as its a common evo noise (i think)..
