Chirpy Chirpy Squeak Squeak!

Been reading through numerous threads about mystery rattles and squeaks, so apologies for posting another.
Mine is a loud squeak in my 159 3.2 Q4 that seems to be coming from the front drivers door area, but it's really hard to be precise so might be the dash area. It seems that it starts after the car has been driven for a while or going over a sharp bump then gets more frequent the longer the driving time. Motorway speeds seem to set it off more than slower speeds, but once it starts it won't go away again until the next time when it will start after 20 - 30 mins driving again. I've used silicon all around the door seals and fixings to no avail. Any suggestions would be welcomed as apart from this annoying squeak the car is a real pleasure to drive.

Agreed. Even though the windscreen squeak comes from the top of the windscreen, it can appear to be coming from the dash.

I gave it the silicone spray treatment about three times at increasing intervals, and it went away for good.
