rubbing sound to woooing sound

Hi Guys;

maybe you can help me, I have a 318i and recently after I travel to Dubai with friends, I heared some rubbing sound, its like metal to asbestos, so i thought it was just my brake pads; however recently ann additional wooing sound comes in in the middle, where the transmission is. but it dissappears most of the time.

it usually comes only when I start my car from morning or the car comes from a long park. say 2 hrs. but on idles I cant hear a thing?

Its driving me nuts!

So is it only happening whilst moving? Is it at speed?
Is there any related vibration?
