Just checking if this is a normal noise at idle

Hello everyone, just wanted to get everyone's opinion on whether this noise is normal at idle (it is 500 rpm in the garage):



You can hear it in the background (sorry for the horrible quality).

The car drives great and I know I am being paranoid, but it would comfort me to know that everything sounds fine.

Thanks everyone!!

Sounds fine to me. Don't bother paying attention to every small sound this engine makes. S65 is a noisy engine , just redline it and enjoy the awesome sound.

i think i figured out that rattling sound at like 3500 rpm. it's not the engine at all, it's the vents on the hood! not sure how you stabalize them, but they rattle when you press on them
