Auto Trans Question

here is a question for you guys. I have a 1998 328i automatic. I've noticed that when I drive, I can feel the gears change, but when they do, there is a faint sound that comes from the engine compartment. Its hard to explain what it sounds like, kinda like a small squeal sound, then like a click sound. does anyone know what this is? car drives fine, also it seems like that sounds been getting louder lately . . . . . . .

hmm, a sound clip would be helpful if possible

What's the mileage on your car so far?

Maybe if the problem continues you can take it to your local mechanic or your BMW dealer and take them for a test drive to diagnose the problem?

Hmm have you ever used the M mode on your car? From what I can remember, if I use the M mode, well bascially just keeping it in, for example 2nd, and if I accelerate up to 3000rpm and just as I let go of the accelerator, and the rpms drop down, I can hear this slightly squeal, or whinning put it in my way, sound being produced as the rpms drop.
