A buzzing noise from the left hand front of the car when opening the door is normal on all Selespeeds. It is the electric pump operating to build up hydraulic pressure in the gearbox actuator.
This occurs when you open the door so that the gearbox is ready to select neutral when you start the car.
The delay you feel and noise you hear is the gearbox selecting neutral when you start the car. If the car is in neutral already it should start immediately without having to press the brake pedal.
Hope this helps. wink
