Default New Guy with a 2006 STi...questions

Hey -

I just picked up my first STi this past weekend. Its THE car I've wanted since 2006 and I love it so far! It is completely stock, but hasn't been its whole life. It used to have a TBE running a stage 2 map. Right now The only mods are rally armor mudflaps and the APv2 running a stage 1 tune so I can monitor the engine. I'll be going to Subaru to get it looked over soon. I just hit 20,200 miles on the way home and got 26 mpg!

Anywho, I have a few questions.

Noises...Holy cow. Is it just the stock tires that make the road noise excessively loud? I realize there isn't much sound dampening material, but I feel the stock tires make the most noise.

Whistling Noise - It whistles while cruising (Not spooled). Sounds like coming from the rear diff, sometimes up front too. Normal?

Slow reverse sharp turn - Sounds like the rear diff is locked when the DCCD is on auto. I've looked into it and set it to fully open and sound does go away. Should it do this on auto? All diff. fluid was changed with amsoil.

Heres some pics to keep everyone happy. It needs a good polish and wax.
