2018 x6m whinning noise

Hi, i recently purchased a 2018 x6m black spahhire edition ... i am loving the car, it is incredible. I am having one problem which appears to be a whinning noise coming from underneath the hood... this only happens when the rpma go below 2000 or i am in idle... has anyone had this issue? And if so is it normal or is there a fix? I know its an m engine and cabin noise / engine noise is normal but this is a high pitched whinning noise, feels like an issue.

Mein Auto: 2018 X6M
I am experiencing it as well. I actually gave it to BMW for service. Will let you know what they say. I too LOVE this car. I have a 2018 x6m black fire. Before this I had a x6m, and recently a 2015 M6 gran coupe. So I KNOW how this car should sound and it doesn't sound right. Also noticed a noise that sounded like a loose belt the other day, and the "engine is too hot" warning came up and I took to bmw right away.

Will let you know what they say!

Hello there. For me, the whine was caused by a faulty Belt Tensioner. It was a quick fix, and was covered under warranty. I hope that helps.
