Strange whistle

I've been driving my wife's 2014 X1 today and noticed a whistling noise coming from the front passenger at speeds 45mph and up. Anyone else having this issue? My resolution was to turn the radio up.

Check to see if it is your climate control fan. Mine occasionally makes a very high pitched whine at higher speeds. Turning the blower speed up, or off makes it stop. But the "Volkswagen Solution" that you mentioned is probably the best bet.

Not the fan. Tested it out. Was on t/c with folks in the EU and one of them has an X1 with the same issue for a few months. Apparently a 'campaign' notice was issued from BMW and the fix was a sealant on the bottom of the windshields glass and it has solved the problem 100% going on several months now.
