Exclamation Strange sound from front when cornering

Hi there i drive an E93 M3 for about a year now. Since a few days driving the Tuscan hills the car makes a strange sound during firm cornering at high speed. The frist time i heard it i took a round-about firmly.
The sound is metal ticking kind of noise. I happends i both left and right corners.

I put a GoPro video on YouTube so you can hear it.
Does it sound familiar to anyone? Does anyone know what it is or what it can be?

Thanks so much for your help!

I hear the sound.. could be a lot of things. Almost sounds like rubbing maybe? Are you modified? Or, could be something loose in your car sliding around on corners....

I couldn't hear anything in the video.

Is it making the same noise with tight radius turns, e.g. in a parking lot? If so, that's the diff. Mine is pretty loud. Some people say to swap the diff fluid, I haven't done it myself.

I've been recently getting similar noises as well. Only happens when going around a bend / tight corner with a bit a weight shifting either left or right hand side of the car.

Initially I thought something was flapping in the wind near my door. I don't know what it is...

My car has the same sound coming from the front. The dealer couldn't find the reason as yet. They replaced the front bearings, yet the sound is still there.

I'm trying to live with it.
