Got me a GT

Hello to everyone. I purchased this 2010 a few months ago. This is the 1st BMW I have owned. Just some observations from my short time with the vehicle.
This car is fast. I tend to go for the soft ride luxury vehilces (just came out of a Lexus LS 460). Much more of a drivers car than I am used to. Fun to drive. My only real complaints are poor gas economy, and this terrible whining sound. Has anybody experienced this sound? I have never had a car that made this noise.
I have been adding my little touches to the car. Tinted windows, blacked out emblems, grille, front reflectors and moldings. I am tempted to go with the Dinan stage 2 kit, but due to the fact I only keep a car 12 months, I just cant seem to justify the price. The car is fairly well optioned. From what I can tell, the only options missing are all wheel drive, heads up display, and rear entertainment package.
