New to the forum. Just purchased an F Type R AWD 2019. Had a few services done since purchase including the supercharger isolator TSB.

Ever since purchase, I’ve noticed a ticking/whistling sound coming from around the drivers side down pipe area. Becomes loud when engine is warm. I have attached a video. To me it doesn’t quite sound like an exhaust leak but not ruling it out. Any thoughts? Noise especially apparent between 750-1100 rpm

Here is the link to the video: iCloud

Shorter video isolating the sound with higher rpm: iCloud

Thank you very much in advance!

Presumably it is under warranty for another 3 years at least. Jaguar dealer should be able to diagnose/dismiss this issue. A simple smoke test is best way to confirm a small exhaust leak. I once had a "micro" leak on a Jeep Grand Cherokee that took a long time to resolve until a smoke test confirmed the location. Needless to say, in the meantime, the dealer had replaced the O2 sensors to "fix" the check engine light. Though, I would be a bit surprised if a new Jag would not detect a leak in the exhaust in the same way.

Thanks for the response Chris! I have called the dealer to schedule the appointment.
Update - dealer initially dismissed the issue as normal. Then the check engine light came on. They’re now replacing the catalytic converter. Will see if that was the noise.
