B58 Engine Whine. Anyone else noticed it??

Hi all,

My first post on this forum so apologies if any mistakes are made or I post in the wrong area

I own a 2018 M240i 8AT and since I've had the car I've been hearing this "whine"... at first I thought it was coming from the gearbox and read into it so much I was convinced the box was faulty, given that alot of people seem to be experiencing whining from the 8AT. However, I'm 99% sure its coming from the engine now and sounds as if its the pulleys whining, after watching a few YouTube videos of the B58 it seems as though I can hear it in all of them so I'm assuming it's just a normal mechanical noise I'm hearing from pulleys and belts as it also seems to be rev related too (higher revs - higher pitch) almost like a winding up noise and once letting off the accelerator you can hear it "wind down" if that makes sense? also makes the noise whether in neutral, park or drive.

If you haven't already worked it out I'm pretty paranoid about noises on the car especially mechanical related ones but thought I'd just check in to see if what I'm hearing is totally normal or not? And if anyone else has noticed the whiney engine whilst increasing the revs. I appreciate without a video its hard to tell so I will try to post one up later.

Thanks in advance all.
