Hey,

I've been experiencing weird static sounds from the front passenger speaker lately, can also hear the alternator whine when revving. Seems like the car is picking up some cell phone frequencies or something. Little recording I made:

BWM - YouTube

Maybe someone has an idea what seems to be the problem?

Thanks.

I have had sounds through my speakers sometimes but they always occured at the same place, Have you analised when they occur as this might well not be the car but the area you happen to be in.

The whine may be turbo which is to be expected as you describe it, but when an alternator is working hard it will also make some noise, these cars are quite silent compared to many other makes/models so whines from Turbo/alternator will be more perceptable.

The whine sound actually comes from the speaker. Those sounds occur everywhere lately, sometimes they disappear for a while and come back.
