Wheel Rubbing Noise

Hey guys,

I tried searching for this, but it was really difficult since most topics were around clicking noises as opposed to what I am hearing.

I hear a slight rubbing noise on my front wheels and I have no idea what it is. The noise sounds as if a rotor may be a bit warped or something, because its not a constant noise, but its a consistent noise. It gets faster with speed, but always rubs at the same interval point.

I tried to take a video of it, and if you put the volume up really high you can hear it pretty well towards the end of the video. I took it into BMW service but of course they said it was "normal pad noise" on the rotor. There is no chance that I believe that because no other car does that.

Any thoughts? Thanks
