Took my car for a long drive this past couple days. Its amazing that its smooth as butter again. I took it across the 401 to Kingston and a few times on a few stretches, a line of cars got into the 150km/hr range or so....:dunno: Whenever this happened, my car made a wicked roaring noise and you could feel the vibration through the floor. I thought it was coming from the windshield but now i am not so sure. I know it was the wind because if there was a breaker or someone dropped back the the sound would stop in the pocket and as soon as a crosswind or open air was hit, the sound instantly returned.

Anyone ever experience this before? Or heard of it? I dont have a air damn as its not an M3 or anything so i cant think of what body panel would do this.

Do you have any bottom cover or jack pad missing?

Hmmm Never looked at the jack up points. The under car covers are all there and mounted. Going to go and look at that again. :(

E39 used to make a whistling sound when jack pads were missing.
