Shouldn't whine,try changing the diff oil and add a diff additive.If that doesn't work turn the radio up.

You sure it's the diff? The BTR autos have a loud whine in first gear.

Could possibly be the Trans...it is a BTR 4 Speed Auto..

So its something i shouldnt worry about? The car is under warranty at the moment and if there are any issues i want to get the sorted :)

Cheers
