Whistle noise from the engine

Hi everyone,

Does anyone have any idea why my F30(2014) is making this sound when I'm starting it for the first time of the day? Check the videos.It has been checked in the garage and they are saying that nothing is wrong with the car... But still sounds bad even if they had a look the the engine.

Thanks.

Does it stop once you start driving around?

Did they check the intake box and boot?

I have no idea what they have check. They said that everythimg is fine ans is not losing power at all.
After a few minutes(5-10) of driving the noise is going away.

Check the the intake box and boot yourself, check for any holes in the box or rips in the boot.

Also, when was the last time you changed oil? And what filter did you use?

I bought the car just 2 months ago and the dealer did the service as well. On the papper is showing that they have changed the oil and filter but I don't know what filter they used.

I seen some people have a similar whistle noise when they didn't use a genuine bmw oil filter.
So could be that if they said everything else is fine and the air intake is not damaged.

Turbo maybe check for the sound by putting a long metal rod on the various parts of the car until you feel the vibrations that match the sound.
