Annoying grinding noise from frontwheel?
 
Hello.
My 316i makes this annoying grinding noise from driver side front wheel.
Noise is ongoing when i drive car straight, but it stops when i brake or turn hardly left or right.

Brake discs are pretty new and pads also, like 7000 kilometres "old"
I have checked all and there's nothing that doesn't belong there.
Also wheel doesn't heat up.

Sticking caliper causing brake drag or wheel bearing going bad?

Jack up the car and shake the wheel\rim. If it wobbles at all your wheel bearing is shot.
