you must have just done your 1200 tune up. you dealer needs to use a differ differential oil to solve this issue. ask them to look it up, is in their log.

ahh got it. I got 8000 miles on the car already, noticed this maybe 2 months ago once, but it was never a "always thing" until i swapped back into my summer wheels and noticed it more.

Yes, sounds like the differential issue. Just had my diff oil replaced with the new version per the SIB out on the subject. Sound is gone...

I noticed it once and only once on my 2008. Circling a parking lot making tight slow right turns I could hear a rubbing sound. I thought it was something caught in the wheel arch at first. Once the car warmed up it went away and I have yet to hear it since even after trying to replicate it. My dealer will change the diff oil but I may just leave it alone.

Do a search on differential grinding... Had mine resolved under the SIB. Take it your dealer and describe the "grinding" or rubbing noise during slow right turns and they should change the diff oil. Did the trick for me.

This Service Information bulletin supersedes SI B33 01 02 dated March 2008.

SUBJECT
Grinding Noise from the Differential during Slow Cornering

MODEL
E90, E92 and E93 M3 from start of production

SITUATION
A grinding noise may be heard coming from the differential during slow cornering. This noise is best heard during tight cornering situations; for example, while parallel parking, driving in a tight circle, etc.

CAUSE
When the rear wheel speed differential varies during tight cornering, a slip stick effect is created on the lining and steel discs incorporated in the differential locking clutch, causing the grinding noise. This noise typically goes away as the locking clutch discs in the differential are broken in.
The break-in time varies depending on driving habits; for example, tighter cornering (working the locking clutch) means that it takes less time to break in the locking clutch discs.

CORRECTION
If a customer complaint is verified as described above on the E46 M3; E60 M5; E63 and E64 M6; or on the E90, E92 and E93 M3 vehicles, the differential oil should be replaced with a specially formulated differential oil, BMW part number 83 22 2 282 583.
PROCEDURE
1. Drain the differential oil. Refer to the appropriate model repair instruction in TIS:
Main Group 33 / Subgroup 10 / RA 0011259.
2. Refill the differential with special differential oil as shown in the illustration below.
Differential fill capacity = 1.2 liters (1.3 quarts).
3. Road test the vehicle.
With the vehicle at operating temperature, drive in tight circles (20 circles in each direction), allowing the special oil to coat the locking clutch discs.
The grinding noise will decrease when the locking clutch discs are sufficiently coated. Some slight noises may still be heard after driving in tight circles. Advise the customer that it will be necessary to drive the vehicle up to 600 miles before all noises are eliminated.
Note: Vehicles that have had the differential oil converted to this special oil should continue to use this oil whenever a service requiring the differential oil replacement is indicated.

hey, I had my fluid changed on Thursday.. It seems for the most part the sound is gone. I thought I heard it ever so slightly on making a right slow turn yesterday. But im assuming it needs time for the fluid to work its way through thoroughly. So far im pleased with it. It was rather annoying and embarrassing too. I brought the service bulletin in and gave it to my service advisor. He told me I was "right on the money" ...lol.. shame I have to do the job for them, they should know this already, lol..

so this wasn't resolved when they did your M service initially? don't they swap the diff fluid at the M service?

Nope. In fact it didn't start until the M service!

It does take some time to fully resolve. The SB even says it can take 600-800 miles to completely going away. Mine did not take that long but it is gone...
