01 330ci faint beeping noise!

Hey all I have this faint beeping noise while i'm driving. It only happens sometimes but, its like a beeping noise not "beep beep beep" but "beeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeep" <~~ LOL... and when I brake or accelerate it stops and when i let off it does it again. Anyone have any idea to what this is. I have no clue and want to get it fixed. Thanks all. Feedback is much appreciated.

Is it an electronic noise, or could it be a slightly dragging brake pad somewhere?

Open your window. Is it coming from your engine bay? If so > Replace the lower intake boot.

If its coming from inside the car, start looking > http://www.thinkgeek.com/product/b278/?srp=2

Probably a vacuum leak in a line having to do with your brake booster then.
