Exhaust smell at cold start

So, if I get in the car ('19 X5 40i) and start it when cold there's a whiff of exhaust while the engine warms up. If I run around to a few different stores I won't smell it at each of those starts from warm. However, the next cold start will do the same thing. It's the same smell you get if standing behind the vehicle when it starts. At first I thought maybe I was starting it before I closed my door but even with making sure it's closed before starting I still get it. If I remote start and wait, the smell has mostly dissipated by the time I get in.

I reached out to my SA to bring it in, but wondered if anyone else has experienced something like this. Thank you!
