How Knackered? And How Much Will It Cost!??!?

Little help required please guys,

I have a 1999 325 that has started whistling when I start the engine, then stops after about a minute.

Its definately a bearing going on something, I just dont know what. What runs for a minute or so? Doesnt happen when the engine is warm though

Any ideas?used:

im pretty sure that they were still in production in 99 solo... so he may be right...

sounds like you might have a vaccum leak... see if you can pin point the sound in the engine bay, it could also be a fan clutch going bad maybe?? depending on how quick you are to drive it in that one minute... haha

Sounds more like the secondary air pump, common problem:
