2006 X3 Exhaust Drone

Hi guys,
We purchased an 2006 X3 recently. It was not until after the pruchase did we notice an irritating drone that comes with the truck when cruising around 50-55 or when the RPM's are between 1800-2200. I've read this is common among the 2006's, but I have not found anything mentioning a fix, other than disconnecting the vacuum valve in the exhaust which most say makes it worse. Does anyone know of a more permanent solution? Will replacing the muffler fix the drone? Thanks...and awesome forum.
