Finally got round to taking it in this week, needed a couple of other bits doing and surprise surprise they couldnt hear anything.
Oil levels checked, nothing found. Im going to have to take it in when its doing it so I can take a technician out. Frustrating to say the least.
Mine a 3.5 V6 so no Turbo
Not taken it in yet, just wanted to be armed with some knowledge of what it could be before I do.
Its not very high pitched but if more of a whine sound. It doesnt sound far enough forward to be the engine. Its worse when Ive done a few miles and the car is well up...
I have a 2006 W203 C350 with the 7sp Auto. Ive started to hear a lot of Gearbox / Transmission whine. Its worse when you lift of and goes when you apply power.
The car is under warranty so is this something I should take up with the dealer and can I have some pointers as to what it could be...

Chalk and cheese really. I had a muffler delete so the M5 was very loud whereas the Merc is very quiet and refined. For my 6 mile comute to work its going to be much more suitable thats for sure.
The 24mpg average is much better than the 17 I was getting from the M5 (dropped to 13 to work and...
Today I collected a 2006 C350 with 55K on the clock. I part exchanged my E39 M5. (previous cars have been an RX8, 968CS and MG ZTT plus others)
So far I am really happy, its got no where near the noise or shear power of the M5 but I was really surprised how quick it is. The handling is...
