Is a humming steering noise common with the 06-07 GTI?

I recently noticed a humming noise when I parallel park (noticed this when I'm at a stand still and then crank the wheel and slowly accelerate) or parking in my garage. I can't recall this noise always being there so I asked my dealer to look into it - I was told that this is the normal sound that the electro-mechanical steering system makes and that I shouldn't sweat it. Seems to me that this noise is a recent condition - could this be something else like a bearing issue, etc. Since they could not replicate the noice, they could not diagnose it further. Thoughts?

turns out, it's not the steering at all. Apparently it's in the suspension, front struts. She goes in for servicing next week.

Uncle dude...you're in vancouver, right? If so, you might look at Clarkdale for service or a second oppinion should any thing come up for you. They identified the problem in about 5 minutes, even looked at my car on the spot. I'm booked in for repairs there and will post on the experience later.
