    Haven't had that one yet, just the balloon squeal, milling & "clunk clunk" from the DU.

    The "whirling/whoop whoop" usually comes from the wife & kids ;).

    there seems to be a high pitched noise as well as a whoop whoop whoop whirring from the rear DU on the 2017 60d i am speaking of. SErvice center recorded it and the tech said its not normal but after dropping off for 2 days they said it was normal..because they drove another car that it was happening with...yes only 1 other car...and not a 60d. Seems 1 data point isnt really much to decide "its normal" to me.
    I will post the recording here when they email it to us as we asked for it today.
