Squealling and Whistling Sound

Hi, been hearing squealling and whistling sound from the front of the car when accelerating from a stop, especially louder when the weather is hotter. It also happens when i do turns as well. My car is stock 335i, with 60,000Kms. Anyone know what might the problem be. Thanks in advance.

Check the flexible shields behind the rotors, if one is bent it may be rubbing on the rotor.
