I would suspect it is a bit chronic as our X3 has both a gear whine and a shudder under acceleration. Both are minor, and the dealer has ignored the problem - no fix is imminent. In fact, we have tried three different dealers to no avail. The biggest joke about it is that they blame the tires. Apparently, if they were to be believed, brand new tires that are road force balanced cause a whining noise and shudders on acceleration. I have spoken to several owners of X3's in our area, and all report whining noises while some confirm shudders on acceleration. One thing you can say about BMW service - it sucks.
