Hi there,

what do you make of this sound?
Car type: Opel Corsa (2012), 1.2 Petrol, 44000 miles

I've been told that injectors can be noisy in these cars, but not sure if this is the timing chain or just paranoid :)

What do you make of the sound?

Yes, it is a little rattley.
Have you checked the basics like the oil level?
You might want to get an opinion from a local mechanic familiar with that vehicle to find out if it is normal or not.

The car just received a full service and all levels have been checked.
