Ok listen to this...

I'm pretty sure this is exhaust related. If I turn left and I am NOT in 
gear- no noise. Upon inspection, my stromung downpipe is VERY close to the 
heat shield on the passenger side of the engine bay- the one that attaches 
to the heat shield on the airbox. Strange. SOOOO- Do I have a bad motor 
mount? Doesn't look like it but I'll check it out. Could my Stromumg have 
shifted THAT much????? WTF? I need a Benz :P
