I have a 2.0 diesel and I noticed the same noise when the engine is cold and accelerating around 1200-1500 RPM. I asked the dealer to check and they said they didnot hear anything out of normal. So I checked one of my close friend's same model X3 and, his car has similar noise. I'm guessing it is from the turbo as well, and hoping that it is totally normal. It is kind of annoying if you listen to it.
