New x5 owner

Hello
New x5 owner. 2002 4.4i. First BMW I ever owned. My wife liked the bmw for her winter driver. It needs a little work like brakes and a inner tie rod end. No problem as I am mechanically inclined.
One issue is there is a whirring noise in the front end. While travelling. If I get on the accelerator it diminishes but once back to normal cruise or normal load on the front tires it comes back.
My thinking is front wheel bearing(s). Just asking if I am on the right track?

Also what is the job like to replace? Cost?

Looking forward to taking to everyone about this and learning about the BMW's
