If my noise comes back I'm going to ignore it with music. I can't believe your compressor is shot this early on. Lucky you have the extended warranty. I have lost all faith in the BMW product.

There is no sound from the compressor when the A/C is on (well that I've heard anyway). Get them to check the levels, valves and perform a leak test on the lines.

Sounds like a good idea, just tell them you suspect your A/C system has a leak and tell them to check the shrader valves. They can figure it out from there.
