    Yes tony, exactly the same noise, but my noise is continous then disappears above 20 mph, where as your noise appears to dip every second.

    Hi there. I use to have the same problem i think i can help! Anyway i use to have sceetching from the left rear tyre of my x 323 when i moved of in the first sometimes the tyre would over spin in relation to the right tyre. I had the car read for ECU and it was the traction control sensor. It cost me about £75 to buy from BMW and another 20 to fit. although u can do it your self its quiet easy if fancy doing it i only took it to a garage cos i had to change the hand brake shoes! Hope this will be of some help!
    My BMW history= E36 318IS, 323I,Mini Cooper, E46 320 D SE and now E39 530D. awesome

    ok, as its very similar i wanna tell u a story. as the noise is so damm irritating i took my car back to bmw and asked them to check it as i have AUC warrenty. got there bloke said ok we'll check it out. cut a long story short his techie came back with the conclusion that the rear brake pads r worn down and need to be replaced. result, do i need to book it in, nope we can do it in 1/2 hr, cool get on with it, btw it cost £247 (thereabouts). wat !! i thought its under warrently, sorry its wear and tear. hold on why has'nt the i drive told me i'm driving with worn down brakes pads. its not fully worn down, its a problem where the brake pad is touching the sensor and causing this sqeal sound and as its w & t its not covered, but not worn down enough wear the sensor will alert u. well then its not worn down according to me cos the car has not alerted me and i'm not paying that amount, put the car back together. so when i got back there i asked him again, i could tell he found it difficult to explain to a cust that the pads have worn down but even though its within legal limits i'm not covered. i told him i have found a bmw doc where this is a very common problem with 3 series and i will send it to him. so he billed me £66 pounds for checking the problem and i have sent him some links via email including a bmw doc thats been posted and also told him its seems to be a known problem, of course he did'nt know of this. well i await his reply (hopefully) the problem seems to be with the sensor but here is the BMW doc for u guys to look at. i will let u know what he says if he ever reply back to me.

    good luck Tang, hope u have better luck than me. make sure u show them the report and let us know what happens.

    Neal do u know if all bmw garages access the same database? so the garage i went to have written on their computer report that they advise pads to be replaced, however if i went to a different bmw garage and they input my reg, would this other garage be able to read what the previous one has recommended??

    No they won't mate...garages are selfish and don't share the work between themselves (franchise thing and all that cr*p). However, if it is warranty related, it would come up as the information is stored on their central computer
