Check your tyres or wheels for damage.
If no damage evident it may be just tyre noise.
Many 'block' tread type tyres are prone to generate road noise.

There is a whirring noise and the gears don't seem to be kicking in. The car is an slk automatic


It seems that your clutch plates have worn out. The automatic gears system uses a centrifugal clutch which automatically engages as the engine rpm increases. If the the plates are worn out, it will make a whirring sound as you rev the engine & there will be a loss of power transmitted to the wheels resulting in slow pick up of speed. Get the clutch plate assembly replaced.........sodeep

In 2 wheel drive there is a whirring sound from the front end followed by a loud clunk where it feels as though you have run over a large rock or chunk of ice. Does not seem to occur in 4wd


if the whirring you describe sounds like an airplane and increases with speed that would be a wheelbearing and it may be loose to cause the clunk noise. when it is put in 4 wheel drive that can load the bearing up and noise goes away.

Z3 whirring sound when transmission is engaged


It is possible that your differential could be making the sound. However, if the sound disappears when putting the trans in neutral, I would suspect that the differential should still be making noise. If the torque converter is worn, then you would have noise while in gear, but probably not as noticeable while in neutral. Depending on the production date of your car, 2000-early2001 Z3 had an issue with the torque converters.
