I've a 330xi with a 6MT, and I agree with Zooks. I see the x-drive/MT combo mostly among the BMW owners who like driving on snow - they favor the x-drive/MT for its handling.

Check if the protection plate (e.g. 34106780216) is rubbing against the disc. If it did you would hear rubbing noise, most noticeable when the car moves with engine off.

1. If you are still under warranty, take the car to a dealer.
2. It would be good to know if your car is AT or MT.
3. Google how to check the bearings in the front wheels.
