Q: High pitched squeek upon light acceleration on 2006 BMW 330i

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
I have a high pitched squeeking noise upon light acceleration. It seems to be inconsistant. But, you can hear it. Any ideas on what it could be?

Sometimes you can hear a similar sound when the breather system (PCV) failed.
A BMW specialty shop should be able to check the PCV pressure with a manometer.

If the sound is originating from the right rear wheel, it may be the brake pad wear sensor. It apparently will "flex" enough and make contact, producing the squeak. Really annoying; a local BMW shop should be able to adjust it, but it may set you back ~ $100. Design-flaw.
