BMRLVR4LF is on a distinguished road
Please help me diagnose this engine noise

Wife is out of town with our 2009 X5 125K
Started making this noise
Gets louder with revs
Doesn’t look like a belt or pulley issue
No codes, engine runs fine except the noise
Doesn’t change with AC on or off

Any help would be greatly appreciated
