323i Sound

My 99' 323i just started making this sound whenever I start it up or throttle while driving. Im not sure whether its the cold weather setting in (its 49F when I recorded this video) or whether there is something wrong and I need to get it in the shop.

Heres the video :

It just started to make this sound a few days ago. I think it has something to do with the cooler weather.
