Mein Auto: 2009 X5 35d
Whirring noise when braking/turning

Hello I wondered if anyone can help me with a problem on my wife's X5 35d 2009. Car has been excellent but rather expensive on fuel tyres and servicing.
Vehicle is now 2 years and 50000 miles old. Over the last 15000 miles the car has developed an annoying whirring noise from the dash area when turning or braking. It is most noticeable when the car is warm and louder if braking and steering at the same time. There is no vibration only the noise. I have had it back to the BMW dealer a couple of times and they have made some effort to rectify the fault including changing the front brake backplates but this hasn't helped. The Warranty is about to run out and I don't want to end up with a big repair bill in the future.
Many thanks and kind regards
