Default Wierd sound from 07 STi

I've got a wierd sound coming from my STi. It only has 600 miles on it and I've followed the instructions for the break-in period. But when I'm driving it sounds like maybe one of the brake calipers is stuck. The noise slowly comes on when I'm driving and it goes off once I step on the breaks or accelerate. I don't see any excessive amount of break dust on any of the wheels. Is this normal during break-in or is something wrong?

Sound like something is rubbing against something else. Like a droning sound I guess. But like I said, it stops when I hit the brakes.

easier thing to do is take it into the dealer since its an easily replicable problem... and you're clearly still under warranty. A lot easier than the guessing game.
