I have The same issue on my 01 325. It's your secondary air pump. It runs only when the car is cold to warm the cats. Only runs for about 5 mins than goes away. What's happening is it's become dirty after so long and that's what causes the noise. It's not a big deal if you can deal with the whistle for 5 mins every morning. Atleast that's what my mechanic told lol.
