Hi
My 1997 E36 323i automatic touring the engine has just 88,000 miles on the clock. It has developed tappet noise.
I have changed the engine oil and filter, and put in a Wynns tappet additive...but this has not cleared the
problem..performance is not affected..... Any ideas please?

keep flushing with cheap oil, don't bother changing the filter. Asda 20/50 is dirt cheap and it even says on the tin that it can be used as an engine flush. I know it's the wrong grade for your car, but you can run on this without any trouble. Change the oil, drive it for 500 miles and repeat. If this doesn't work you'll have to learn to live with the tapping.
