7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
Discussion of BMW's 4th generation E65/E66 7 Series flagship. The E65 generated much controversy, due to its radical styling and iDrive user difficulties. Nonetheless, the E65 broke records to become the best-selling 7-series iteration ever, especially after its 2005 facelift.

Sounds like alternator, but I could be wrong.

The alternators are known to sound like bad bearings, etc. on these cars.. I would get a long driver or something and put it carefully on the alt. and to your ear and see if it's coming from there.
