IS 350 start up rattle

I have a 2008 IS 350 that has a second long metalic rattle at start up. It has done this on an off since it hit 103,000 miles. It does this cold or hot. It could go days without a sound or every time you start the car. Any thoughts on what this is?

it's the cam gear rattle.

TSB EG017-07 Engine - Brief Knock/Rattle On Cold Start

The good news is there has been a TSIB on this for years.

The bad new is since you're out of warranty it'll cost you over $1000 to have done.
