Help Identifying This Ticking Sound

All, I have two issues I'm hoping you can help me identify:
  • When I first picked up my 2012 E92 Comp. Pkg. in May, the car whined under throttle noticeably more than my previous 2008 E92 M3. I thought it was odd, so I noted it to my SA. The shop foreman agreed it sounded higher pitched than most, but told me they found nothing wrong and to keep driving for a few thousand miles (they didn't note this on the service sheet, though).
  • When I got the car back from the 1,200 mile service, it was making this ticking sound (see video). It's driving me nuts because it makes my car sound broken, my last M3 didn't make this sound, and most importantly, this M3 didn't make this sound before I took it in for my 1,200 mile service.

I'm taking it in soon, but have any of you experienced either of these problems?
