Did you ever find out?

I had an 04 and it was fine but just got an 07 and it is MUCH louder. There must be a way to lower it.

Remove the fuse.

No, all seriousness aside, I had the rear PDC on a E46 lease vehicle in the UK one time and it almost drove me nuts. I would have cheerfully shot the thing with a 30 mm RARDEN cannon if it wouldn't have left me stranded on the A303.

are you guys talking about the factory installed front and rear PDC or the dealer installed rear license plate PDC? is there a difference in volume for the two? the reason I'm asking is I ordered the rear PDC from my dealer as my X3 didn't come with it.
