Varying Clicking Noise

I just had my oil changed (by BMW) and since then I can hear a clicking noise that seems to vary with acceleration. I can hear it while I'm sitting in the drivers seat, but it's subtle enough that if there's any other noise inside that car then it won't be noticed.

Here's a clip of my engine at idle:

Let me know if you think it's engine or something else.

They must have overfilled. Check the oil level.
