Buzzing noise 98 E36 M3/4

When I start my car in the morning there is this buzzing noise, it goes away in a like a minute. I think it's because the car need to warm up...? Does anyone know what the problem might be? Thanks.

Buzzing like vibration? like electric motor? from the dash? from the door? from your cell phone? Little more info and we can make at least make an educated guess.
