08 e92 m3 cold start sound normal?

hey guys, i am new to this forum i love m cars i have had an e46 m3 an e60 m5 and now i just purchased a e92 m3 fully loaded jerez black with 6mt and it has 23000km. but the cold start on the e92 has been bugging me because after about a minute the engine sound changes and my other m cars never did this. it only does this on cold starts and once its warmed up its fine. anyways here is a video on the sound change iam talking about it happens at 27 seconds in.

It is mentioned in the owners manual. Something like "metallic sound".

I love the sound, sometimes I let it cool down before I drive again just to hear the 60 seconds of badassness.

Puts a massive grin on my face every morning during the first start up.... LOVE THE NOISE!

I just turn it on, get out and listen to the noise...
