I have transmission whine

I think it is punishment from the car gods because I was just doing naughty things with it earlier today.

I wish I could strap a friend to the underside of the car and have him listen to where the sound is actually coming from. It is whining in first gear between 1.6k and 2k+ rpm and possibly more but the exhaust is so damn loud it drowns it out afterwards. It does not appear to scale with the engine rpms but again I cannot really tell because of the exhaust.

I used to have a bit of grinding while in 1st gear when the car hadn't warmed up but definitely nothing like this before. Oh well... looks like there is a built tranny in the future D:

When I had transmission whine it sounded as if I had a whipple supercharger, and definitely got louder with rpms. It was audible from 1st though 4th gear. Was fixed under warranty and has now been quiet for close to 30,000 miles, if your powertrain warranty is still valid, take it to the dealer for the fix

Have you brought it in to your dealer yet, Theocletian? If not, I recommend you speak with your service manager, as he is in the best position to ensure a proper diagnosis, and will be able to provide available options and/or coverage for any work needed.
