Can someone tell me if this engine noise is bad?

Hi,
This is my 2008 550i with 46,733 miles. I just bought the car back in October and it had 43,193 miles. It has a sport automatic transmission. My SA checked the service records and it was maintained according to BMW's maintenance schedule (15K oil changes etc.).

My only mods are a Dinan Stage 1 software upgrade done at the dealer. I plan on changing the oil once it it's 7,500 and will do that from now on. I also changed the antifreeze, powersteering fluid and the differential fluid.

There is a strange sound coming from the engine. I'm wondering if it's just normal or am I just paranoid? I checked the oil level and it's ok.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Henry

I think all I'm hearing is the same injector rattling noise that all the bmw v8s make. Sounds like mine.

I had a 545i and I'm wondering if I ever heard this noise on that car.

It sounds like valvetrain noise or slop or something.
