Noise is most commonly the tires. "V" cut tread designs tend to be noisier. What tire is on car now? Does car have "Runflats" (Does car have spare). I believe original tires were Bridgestone RE050's. Continental usually a great choice. Michilin will give best ride and durability, but can ne noisy. Road noise and wheel bearing noise can be identical. With such low mileage, wheel impact would be most likely reason for damaged bearing. Most mechanics can test drive and spin wheels in air to determine cause of noise.
