Strange Noise When Letting Off Gas

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Whenever I shift or let off the gas, there's this strange squawking noise. I was told it was the blow off valve and it's normal, but in my opinion it sounds like shit. Does any one else have this issue? Thanks guys

That would be the sound of your stock electronic diverter valve.

Really nothing you can do about the sound as it's a vital component of your turboed engine.

I get that too, not as often anymore but it generally happened in parking lots when I was driving the car slowly in first gear and let off the gas. Weird sound but I got used to it

Weird. My DV didn't sound like that from the factory. It was more high pitched and fluid-sounding. Like this: TSYEWWWWWWWWW! Haha but seriously, though, yours sounds kind of like a dying falcon.

It just started after this cold front came through so I don't know if that has anything to do with it or not? But hahaha seriously, it sounds just awful.

Is there any reason as to why it just started though?

You can hear the whistle a little in this video, does it sound like this? Or no?
