whine with AC on at low speed

I've noticed that when I turn the AC on in my 2016 228x drive M Sport it vibrates the seat quite a bit. Its actually uncomfortable at a stoplight. The dealer said this is because of AC demands on a V4 N20 engine. I've also noticed that at low speeds/gears there is a low-grade whine/groan (especially when going uphill). When the AC is off this sound is completely gone.

Anyone else having issues with AC vibration/noise or thoughts as to if this is abnormal? thanks

No, that shouldn’t happen. Maybe you have low coolant and that’s why the AC compressor is struggling or maybe the compressor itself is bad. Do you notice the compressor switching on and off (vibrations and engine load should go down) while you are stopped? It automatically disengages after a while to save fuel. That should help you troubleshoot further.
