Update:
Had the oil pump replaced, and no more whine! Dealer only had it for 1 day. Also, after reading the horror reviews about run flats, I decided to keep the non run flat tires on the car. The dealer gave me the BMW mobility kit. I have other vehicles, so I don't need to worry about getting around in the snow or extreme cold.
Interesting fact, BMW will not pay the dealer for new oil and filter while replacing the oil pump. They expect the dealer to store the oil in a clean container, and then reuse it. I was surprised by this and requested new oil and filter. The dealer did this for me with no extra charge ( I would have no problem paying for the oil and filter).
