159 - high pitched whistle

Have been driving my new 159 for a week.
There is a very pronounced high pitched whistle at about 40kmh and up coming from the drivers side mirror.
It is unbearable loud with window down and painfully just audible with the window up.
Have tried manipulating the mirror casing with no luck - the passenger side is fine.
Anyone had similar problems?

Apart from this I love it!!

Re: 159 - high pitched whistle

check the plastic trim at the base of the windscreen where the A pillar meets the scuttle, it is held in place by a screw medially and a couple of clips on the A pillar. Mine is loose and and whistles.

Try folding the mirrors in for a few minutes (on the auto button) and see if it was any difference...
