BMW 535xi clicking nose after starts

Hi guys, new here, and this is my first thread, and it starts with a problem. I have a 2008 BMW 535xi and recently it started a weird clicking noise from under the bonnet. After starting the car and heating it for a while it starts. It might be the belt or under the engine, not sure. You guys know anything about this? Thanks
P.S. I have a video recording of the problem but don't now how to upload it.

Don't know what half broken DISA valves sound like. But maybe you can surf for someone who has recorded that sound. They are little flaps in the intake manifold that open and close and can break off. Just a guess of something to consider.

By the way the ticking noise starts after the car has warmed up and driven for a while. Such as I would go for about 15 min drive and then the noise would start.
