Mein Auto: 2009 BMW 328i

Things like that drive me crazy too, thanks for reminding me about it...
You know, I never really thought about the engine whine too much until reading this thread, and then I was immediately prompted to go out for a drive and pay attention to it. My 328i seems to whine when accelerating between 20-45 mph, and then anything over that I don't really hear it. I also noticed that after the engine reaches operating temp, it'll whine when I back out of a driveway. Very curious.
