BETWEEN 3500RPM AND 4000RPM, ENGINE SOUNDS STRAINED

1999 BMW 316 • 108,500 miles

Recently while driving ive noticed that in 5th gear, between 3500rpm and up past 4000rpm, my engine sounds strained as though its running dry and rough. Its rectifys itself once I slow down and keep below 3500rpm in all gears. Ive regularly checked oils and coolant and all seems fine. Can you tell me what this could be a sign of?

High speed misfire maybe, have engine ignition system checked out first.
