Be sure, as well to have all your tires that comply with the specifications indicated in your owner`s manual of your vehicle.
My mechanic also diagnosed my 2005 X3 (106,000 miles) with a transfer case problem because of the slight whining noise on deceleration and acceleration. I then took it to the BMW dealer, who came up with the same thing. After reading Martin's post, I asked them to change the transfer fluid (which was supposedly done at 96K) and will get it back today. I will also have the tires checked just to make sure they are in compliance. Although this is my first post, I depend on this forum all the time! Thank you.
