Hi all.

Just got my first 4 cylinder BMW, in the guise of a 320I M Sport Touring. It's a 2008 Auto with 55K, and just had a few nebee q's.

When driving at low speeds there's a noise coming from the gearbox area, like a binding break rubbing on a disk, its noticeable as the engine is so quiet, is this normal?

Then when if you really push the car, like letting it go up through the revs in sport mode, the engine has a strange almost scream of a noise, and just wondered is this normal, as I have only ever had 6 cylinder BM's in the past.


in advance.
