Humming Noise During Kickdown After Accident in 2011 F10 535i

I was recently in a car accident (rear car rashed into me and caused me to hit the person in front of me). Just got the car back but...

When I accelerate (0-60), travel at high speeds 60-80mph, or kickdown the car makes a whirring/humming noise. It's not there when you accelerate normally but when accelerating aggressively there is a high-pitched whirring noise that is driving me crazy! It almost sounds like something is loose or a part is loose and is thus vibrating...

Driving the car aggressively is the beauty of owning such a magnificent car and if I have to hear a whirring/humming noise every time I do so then I'm going to be really upset (damn the driver who hit my baby!!).

I checked the ball-bearings and that's not the case. The BMW service guy said that this is normal with BMW cars but I personally think he's an idiot. I have had the car for over a year (purchased brand new) before the accident and there was no such sound. I do believe the accident caused it but I don't know what it could be.

Can anyone give me suggestions? You guys are such an amazing community, please help me get my beautiful car back to the pristine condition in which it was before the crash.
