I have an engine tick/rattle that has come on in the last few days. I was wondering if anyone has any advice or a similar issue?

I appreciate this is my first post but i've only picked the car up 3 weeks ago. Video below.

Thanks in Advance

That could be an exhaust leak. Exhaust manifold, downpipe, midpipe. They can often sound very metallic and "lifter-like". Have you slid under the care and checked?

Sounds like normal GDI chatter to me.
