strange noise from rear of car

Hi all,

I was test driving a 2000 323i with manual transmission and sport package, everything is stock, and I noticed a strange noise from the rear of the car. The best I can describe it as is a speed-related grinding that occurs only between about 5 and 20 mph. It is not very loud, probably can't hear it with the fan or stereo on. The owner hadn't heard it before and is willing to have the dealer check it out prior to selling me the car, but I'm wondering if anyone out there has experienced this and can perhaps point out things to bring to the dealer's attention.

Also the shifting seems a bit notchy, is that normal for this car?

many thanks in advance...
