Noisy 116i engine – sounds like a diesel…..

Just bought an AUC 2012 F20 BMW 116i sport a few weeks ago so its still under warranty – very excited it is my first BMW purchase!!! But have noticed that the engine is really noisy when the engine is idle. I don’t really notice the engine noise that much when I am driving along. As I am new to BMW cars - is this common for the engine to sound like this? Or is this an indication of a fault. Sounds more like a diesel rather than a petrol engine.
I have put a link to a video so that you are able to hear what it is like under the hood.



Appreciate any comments or help.
Thanks in advance

Sounds normal. Typical noise from a modern direct injected petrol engine.

It sounds normal and just like mine. I have to admit that I was surprised myself when I first heard mine a few years ago. But this is not a fault.

However, I always wanted to check whether this noise comes from the turbocharger heat insulation cover but I never had the chance to do it.
