Engine Noise

I have a completely stock 2000 323i with about 82k miles on it and for about the first 10 minutes or so after its been cold I can hear a sort of rattle from the engine, it sounds kinda like a really really quiet diesel engine and I cant really tell where its coming from, I really doubt its bearing or valve noise because the car has always been well maintained from what I can tell(good service records, no gunk under the valve cover, bought from a very reputable dealership) and I have always used Mobile 1 0w-40, could it be the water pump bearings, or maybe the vanos but it doesnt really sound like the vanos rattle and I can only hear it at idle. Any Ideas would be greatly appreciated, Thanks.
