I think he has the same sound that mine makes occasionally. Same type of symptom; start car, foot on brake, shift out of Park into Drive, let foot off of brake, hear a short sound coming from up front somewhere. It almost sounds like a musical tone, like if you rubbed the rim of a crystal wineglass, for just a second. I've had it since I got my car in 1999, it doesn't always do it, but it often does it after the car has been sitting in my garage all night. I like Bob Dillon'* suggestion to lube the parking brake cable, that might be it. I dunno. I've had my dealer check it out before and they've never found anything wrong with it. I've had pads replaced before and had no change in the sound. I have no idea what it is, but I just chose to live with it. In seven years of ownership it hasn't resulted in any component failure (yet).
