Question Answered: Intermitent whistling sound from front drivers side of engine at low speeds?

The accessory belt idler pulley can make whistling noises, especially at start up. If it's not coming from the front of the engine, and sounds more like from the top of the engine, then it could be the intake manifold runner valve, but that one would affect engine performance.

The E36 and E46 BMWs have problems with not only the subframe bushings, but the entire rear suspension can separate from the subframe. This is very common on M3s that tend to get launched very hard off the line and/or downshifted from speed. The repair is available in a kit that is welded into the subframe. The rear suspension is then reconnected to the new mounting position.

There is a resistor that controls the blower speed. It is a commonly replaced item on many vehicles. It is located behind the glovebox attached to the blower motor. A good shop that handles many Euros should be able to take care of that for you.

Hi, your '04 530i has two drive belts - one for the altenator, water pump, and power steering; and another one for the A/C compressor. Both belts have associated tensioners and pulleys that can wear out over time causing noisy operation and loss of tension on the belt.
