Have had the 535xi for 3 months and love it. No issues. 2 days ago i headed up a relatively steep paved hill at about 25 mph when the car started to vibrate. It felt like the transmission was slipping in and out. Lasted for 20 seconds. I am not sure how to check the transmission oil level as yet so if you can tell me THANK YOU. Appreciate the help.
Question Asked: Wondering if the noise while driving is normal, or not.

Just bought the 2007 530xi. I am asking if the noise I am about to describe is normal or a problem. The sound starts at about 10km and continues at all higher speeds. The only way I can describe the sound is that it is the same as listening to the tire friction sounds when a 4x4 with very large tires drives by. My tires are new, but I am quite certain it is not the tires. Sound appears to be coming from the front of the car. Is this sound normal to this car? I expected it to be much quieter.
