Alright so in the past two to three days I have noticed that when I stop and then go from a stop sign or light there is a very quiet whoosh like sound. I have not hear this in any other car I have drive, manual or not. Has anyone else expierenced this, I'm thinking of possibly taking it in to be on the safe side. :dunno: :sad:

Do you have a CAI, new or old? If not, it might be a loose or un-secured clip on your air filter box letting air bypass it.

I have a Dinan CAI and it sounds like a jet or supercharger everytime I hit the pedal!

He already said it was the MPG. Also did anyone try to get a 330 cluster?

I have this same problem. It took me about two months to figure out that it was my MPG gauge. I'm going to see if the dealer will order me a 330 performance cluster since all the clusters come un-programmed anyway and the electronic are the same. I'm going to wait till March to take it in.

BTW mine sounds like a cog spining not a whoosh. It's like girrrrrclishhhhh going up and cliiiiiishhhhh going down. You press the gas , you hear the noise and at the same time the MPG goes up as the noise since the MPG is delayed behind you pressing the gas peddle.

I have the same exact problem on my 01' 330Ci. I also started noticing it when I came to a stop or accelerated from a stop. I noticed it was coming from the MPG gauge every time it moved from the left or right. I took it to the dealer and tried to explain the "whoosh" sound. I didn't think they would be able to reproduce the sound, but sure enough they did. They ordered a new instument cluster and will replace it under warranty.
Turn everything off and listen closely and watch your MPG gauge, I guarantee its the same issue as my car. Good Luck!
