    I've had this noise for about 6 months now. It sounds like a roller bearing going bad...what might the experts in this forum think it is?

    Here is a link to 2 videos recorded on a fairly smooth road:
    Video 1, Noise Recording - YCF197.mp4 and 1 more file

    The sound has the same frequency as the wheels are rolling...and it makes a harsher milling sound at about 30-40 km/h (20-25 mph), of which makes the interior rattle with the same frequency as the noise. :-/

    The noise is always there, but at speeds over 150 km/h (90mph), the road noise makes it hard to hear.

    A commonly known issue maybe?

    (wheels are balanced and no rattle in the steering wheel)

    The car is an S90D, 2016 with 66000 ks (41000 miles) on it. Coil springs...
