Wind noise (whistling)

Does anyone else's V40 make whistling noise when going faster than 100 km/h (60 mph)?

Mine makes the noise that seems to come from right front window. Left side makes no noise. Noise begins when I hit 105 km/h, quite annoying.

Could be wing mirrors, this was an issue with the C30. Have a look and see if there are any open spaces on the under side of the mirror that you could temporarily cover and test.

Mine has no noise but the D2 that I drove in the test drive made that kind of noise. Only perceptible for speeds greater then 100km/h - 110km/h and from the right side of the window. I think it was from one of the air vents. I told the seller in the end of the test drive and He told me they were going to send the car to the mechanic to investigate and get it fixed.

No noises here in my D2. I'd take it to the dealer right away.

Maybe thats it, but the car still needs some work at the dealer. The gear is not working properly. Its slow at the left side (first and second gear) and will not "jump" to neutral gear if you let go of the gear shift between gear. Its not smooth anymore, maybe it didnt handle 30C below zero!
