Has my day come? Rod bearings? What do you think this sound is.

It's around ~45 degrees tonight, and after installing some new parts (fender splash guard and undertray) I drove the car out to get some gas. Once the engine warmed up, it started making this sound you see below:



It doesn't appear to make this sound at anything other than idle. It is LOUD though. Sounds like a frigging bus at idle. VANOS chain?

I don't like the noise, although since it does not go with rpm, makes me think it something else.

Sounds like VANOS.
