As usual, people never tell us the whole story, on a 2001 BMW I doubt you have any bearing problems, what I think happened was you had the tires rotated, and they broke one of the clips off the center cap, that you what you are hearing is the center cap Vibrating, until the wheel turns fast enough and gravity keeps it in place
