Default whistling noise at high mph

alright so the other day i was pulling about 100mph (dont say nothin, we've all done it at one point or another) anyway at high speeds i hear this whistle noise kind of..coming from the front end of the car..anyone else experience this air whistle at high speeds? i have had the car for a while and never heard this noise before it sometimes even whistles at 80 or 90.

Thanks

Justin

Search for whistling mirrors... that may be your problem.

yup, I can vouch for the mirrors. the faster you go, the louder they get. after about 130mph (track time) it's all I can hear. (I never hear it down at 90 though, like you do...)

I had the same problem, about 80 and above. I just told the dealer and they fixed it no problem. They commented that the mirrors on the drivers side has a tendancy to do that sometimes (before they replace/tighten the offensive unit). They mentioned replacing a bolt or something--it was too long ago to remember the details. Do it yourself or take the time with them doing it for ya.

You probably don't want to go to your dealership and say "so, when I was doing a buck ten, I heard this really loud noise, what is it?"

I'm gonna agree with mirrors or maybe a loose plastic kick panel in the wheel well. Unless you have the air box mod, then I'm going with that.
At speeds over 100 my front righ wheel well will whistle (<---tounge twister lol) if the intake has come somewhat out of its hole.
