Typical issue with these cars. Get your oil sensor replaced ASAP. Don't add anymore oil you have probably over filled already.

What I would suggest is to start trying to find these noises yourself, 1. Noises are really hard to locate and 2. Mechanics generally suck (bar a very select few).

What I would do is lift the car...

Looking at that it looks like they pushed out the ball joints and bushes from the arms. I can't really make sense from that list of exactly what it is that they did.

There is the upper and lower control arms on each side, so it depends what they did, they may have just done one set.

Number 9 and 14 in the picture.

Even though this engine is slightly different it shows the best what hose I'm talking about. As you can see it goes from the air filter housing to the throttle body.

I'm awaiting your solution, as you have warranty for me it's not worth to start throwing parts at the car. I will be closely flowing this thread as the whistle thing is quite annoying while driving.

I don't know how much it really matters to reset the fluid aging thing, it said to do it in the Bentley manual so I did, but I know most people don't do it.
