Winding Sound When Driving

I have noticed a slight winding sound in my new M5 behind the instrument cluster area whenever my foot is on the gas. The sound disappears about a second after I take my foot off the gas pedal. The sound is most noticable when driving on a high way at cruising speeds with the rpm between 1-2.

I took my car for the 2000 KM service and demonstrated the issue to the service technician who acknowledged the sound. A few days later, he told me that they believe it is the direct injection. They also mentioned that they tried another new car and it has the same exact sound.

Don't get me wrong, the sound is not that noticeable, but I can hear it and it irritates me. Has anyone else experienced this? If it is normal in some cars, is there a way to have BMW look into it?
