I noticed both as well, with a 98 540iA sport. The engine sound changed and mileage went up a bit. It doesn't sound as healthy as it did when new (i think) but its probably right to describe it as a growl. If we're talking about the same thing that is! I believe so because my car has 40,000+ miles on it now, the same sound and it just completed its inspection II service.

I had to pay for the inpection II out of pocket because it was over 36,000 miles. I figured bmw would work things out so that it would be covered by most driving habits, I wouldn't call my driving habits abnormal at all.
