Humming noise like a DVD is starting up

Except there is no DVD in the player....what else would be causing this noise every so often?

What's up, quack? Been a while.

Was hoping something was wrong so it could be fixed. Oh well...moving on.

Good to see you, too. I come and go. I think I need Bimmerfest detox to quit for good!

Other than the hum, how you liking the X5?

I like it but it's no 5-series....like being higher up as a change but already missing the handling of the 5....had a few ladies at a party on Saturday night tell me my car was cute. That sucked...Other than that, going great...

Are you sure about the sound being a vent opening/closing?

Do you have Navi? The Navi disc in my X runs when I unlock the door, before starting the car... presumably loading the maps before you need them. I can hear it from time to time when I'm at a light with the radio muted too.

(or is the navi in the 2013 HD based?) I am not sure :/

Pretty sure the navigation is HDD-based in '13 models but that's exactly what it sounds like.
