Does your 480 have tracking-problems? Does your car pull to one side? Or is your steering wheel vibrating? Read the posts in this category to find out what's going on.

Erm... The gearbox is at the front, so the noise would be coming from there if so. ;)

Rear wheel bearings do start to hum, mine did, getting slightly louder when turning (when the weight transfers to the appropriate wheel)

Also worth checking for siezed rear calipers :)
