Does this sound normal?

My brother is looking at an E39 M5 and he was sent the following videos from the seller.... He is inquiring if this engine sounds normal (thoughts)?

Basically it does. But I am hearing a whistle whooshing sound that seems different but that could be the Dinan cold air intake on that car.

Factory intake system (not DINAN/cold air), although it does have a Shark Injector tune with SAI delete (not sure if that could cause this noise)...

Huh. I wouldn’t think so. Something is funny. But it’s probably something simple.
