Humming/Droning noise

Hi frustrated Newbie here!

My 2003 E46 Ci has developed a noise which I can only describe as a continous humming/droning noise coming from the front when on the move.

Firstly, It sounded like road noise coming from the tyres but swapped them with the rear ones to no avail.

Secondly, it doesn't increase/decrease with speed, so I'm thinking maybe gearbox? Its a steptronic and I don't have any trouble changing up or down either manually or automatically, no clunking sounds etc. So I'm at my wits end!!

Any thoughts?

Don't want to go rushing to the dealer just yet. Many thanks
