new 4.6is engine noise?

Hi, I just purchased an 02 x5 4.6is. I'm extremely happy with it and promise to post pictures in a few days but in the mean time does the engine of my car in this video sound a bit noisier than usual?

Thanks!!!

ehhhhhh that sounds borderline normal to me, lifters tick a little bit... and cameras pick up faint ticking and make it sound worse sometimes... can you even hear it with the hood closed?

how many miles?

Not really, the only thing you can hear faintly is the vanos

Estoril 4.6.... siiiiiick!

I'd say that sounds relatively normal. Keep a close eye on it. Do you get any chain noise on start up? From my research, it seems like that is the best indicator of timing chain guides starting to fail.

sounds normal, do Your self [and your X5]a favor and use Castrol oil only, it sounds like your water pump bearing is making that thud sound.

It has 118,355 miles on it but the carfax said that the guides, tensioners, and water pump have been replaced... I do get a rattle upon startup though

VANOS. Wait a bit, till I get my new egine insatlled and you'll hear how it sounds without VANOS.

Chain ratlles different - you can hear (and also feel it) rubbling especially shortly after engine start.

Ok, thank you, I was just concerned.... And another thing, I got new tires for the front wheels but not the rear, they're the same exact tires as the old ones except different tread pattern, will this Hirt the car?

Thanks
