:dunno: Hi I have a 2004 545i and when I drive after a bit. I hear this squeeking sound. it slows down when I slow down. And at first it used to go away when I went to High way speeds. but now it does it all the time. I just had it looked at and they say it was coming from my drive shaft or does this car have u joint????? Help!!!!!!!!! It sounds like a tea kettle going from high to low depending on the speed i'm driving...

Is it like a metal grinding sound?

no its like a speeling tea pot. at slow speeds its loud! At highway speeds you can hear it but not as bad as when i'm going 30 or 40 mph.
