Actually, I've meant to try that, but I haven't been able to - I don't drive 100 mph every day. Well... okay. Most days. Usually when I have the vents on a closed "air circuit" the radio's on. I meant to hit 100 today with the vent closed, but I couldn't find enough room on the way to work.
I've gone 100+ in my 318 many times, and it didn't make that noise.
Anyway, I'll check the vents tomorrow again and see what I come up with.
That's what I was thinking it was as well, but if I've got the AC on (recirculate) it still makes the noise. I haven't tried recirculating it with the AC off though.

Its the air inlet vents by your windshield wipers. They are meant to draw in fresh air, and when going at high/certain speeds they hit the wind just so and suddenly your cabin has a soft whistle. Can't say that closing the vents helps but it does quiet it down a hair if it bothers you. |
I rarely notice it though, since all my windows are open and the sunroof is open when I'm enjoying 100+ on the racetrack on the way to work every morning. You would too if you drove through a couple mountain roads through a place called Paradice Valley, on your way to work everyday. =P
