So they agreed the noise exists but then they could not hear it?! That would infuriate me. What's your plan now?

Right. I guess I will try to live with it for a while to see if I can get used to it. Otherwise I will talk to the dealer again.

Did you try bringing up the issue with your dealership?

Not yet, I'm fighting my battles one at a time. The doors on our car have a cheap latching sound when they close, rather than just a thunk, which BMW says is normal (even though they fixed it one one door by adjusting it). It's stressful to argue these issues that are somewhat subjective so I didn't want to hit them with both things at once, be told they're both normal, then hate them and want to set the car on fire.

Bringing my car to another dealership to check out the problem. Guys please update this thread if you make any progress on resolving the high-pitched noise issue. Really appreciate it.

FYI I started to notice a new squeak/noise from driver side b-pillar when driving and turning on a low speed. Will have that checked as well.

Again the shop mechanic said they can hear the faint noise. They compared a few other G05 X5s and they all make the same noise. They concluded that there’s nothing they could do.

Unfortunately yes...I called BMW North American and talked about this issue. Their response is that they stand behind dealerships' diagnoses. They said they noted my complaint down.

Folks if you have some time please do reach out to BMW NA to raise this concern. If we have enough people complain about this issue, they will probably look into it (hopefully).

Tagging along to this topic, just had my X5 delivered, and in the first long journey, my wife noticed that sound, apparently it's intermittent. I can't hear it from the driver seat (also, I have tinnitus in both ears so high pitch whistles are lost to me!)

I emailed them too, and basically got the same thing:

"BMW provides a manufacturer's warranty that is valid for four years or 80,000km, whichever should come first, to cover any manufacturing defects discovered in your vehicle during the warranty parameters. Therefore, for the electrical noise from the center console we recommend you to get it diagnosed at your authorized BMW retailer. Once the retailer stated that was a manufacture defect then call us back, we would be happy to review your request."

Ugh, ugh, ugh. Sorry for these experiences.

Yes it's coming out of the speakers, it's intermittent, seems to be worse with the climate control on.

I've been driving with the window slightly open so I don't hear it. Not an ideal solution and not something I should have to do in a $70k+ car.

I'm not entirely sure my noise is the same as this, in my case, it sounds less of a whisle and more of a vibration -- it's also "often" when I'm turning left-ish, and COULD be coming from the steering column, but as you know, actually finding the place is very difficult!
