Timing chain noise??? Help

I have a 2011 335i e92 with the N55 it only has 60k miles and I have this noise coming from the inside of the engine. I took the valve cover to inspect the chain and the cams they all look good and nothing looked broken in there. While I had everything off I replaced the timing tensioner thinking it would fix the problem but it didn't. I am thinking it needs a new chain and guides. Let me know what you think

Heres a vid of the noise

I never had this noise before. My friend has exact same car as me and I took the oil cap and his car doesnít have that grinding noise. Also I went on vacation for a week and let the car sit after I came back it had this noise. Iíve been driving it thinking it was a lifter but still hasnít gone away after a month.

Indeed. "Spoon in the garbage disposal" is the normal sound these engines make when the oil cap is removed.
