Question about 330i engine sound

Just got my new 330i and I was wondering if the engine sound that I am hearing is normal. Under steady throttle (especially low to medium rpm's), the engine has a "deep gargling" sound similar to my VW when I installed a KN filter. This is the only noise I hear constantly and I am cool with if it is normal.
