In Reply to: car makes sounds when headlights are on..... posted by alex on February 03, 2001 at 19:03:00:

my car makes sounds when the headlights are on. a whirring/whining noise comes from the engine bay when i turn them on. could this be the alternator or a unbalanced pulley?



No worries, my 98 makes the same noise. In fact all of my M-friends' cars do the same thing. Completely normal. When I first noticed the noise, I asked my local dealer and an independant BMW workshop - they all said it was completely normal.
