motor turned off, weird sound

hi,

we have a new 318d at home and we just discovered something weird: when the motor has been turned off, after having run a while, it makes a 'weird' sound.
It makes a non-periodical sound, like releasing pressurised air, or injecting some pressurised fluid. Is this something to worry about????

Anxiously waiting on an answer,

BB

Do you hear it from inside the cockpit? If so, weird noises are common for about 15 mins after you turn off the car.

Does the 328 have the electric water pump also, or is it 335-only?

If so, I know I've seen it posted here that the water pump can run after the car is turned off . . .

i'd think you would have to listen very hard to hear inside the cockpit... it is even a faintly sound when the hood is closed.
