It appears to be something with the driver rear wheel side?

I work at BMW/MINI and have never noticed or thought about something like that. However, I won't be back at the dealership until tomorrow. I will fire up the new 128i's and see if they make similar noises and will try to get an answer for you. I am scheduled for 10:30 A.M EST shift so I'll also try to help you out with that.

Please do as I'm sure I'll probably hear more inquiries about this.

So I fired up 3 128i's and did not hear that sound. When one of the techs become available I will bring him to listen to the audio you uploaded and see if he can provide input.

I took it in and they said it was the valve moving in the exhaust as it does this when you start the car and said it sounded normal. So thats good news!
