Whistling sound

I just purchased a 2009 mini hardtop and noticed a whistling sound that started at about 75mph. Tired turning on the recirculation and didn't help. I noticed the other day it was windy and caught a cross breeze doing about 55 mpH and the it whistled again.

Is this common for mini's? Is there a fix?

Thank you in advance!

My wife drives an '09 MINI and she has no such sounds.

Do you have a sunroof?

Have you tried putting a dollar bill between the door and the frame (A pillars, B pillars, Jamb, and roof)?? If the bill pulls out easily in some spots and drags in others then that loose spot could ba source of air leak.

My '11 MINI has no air leaks either.
I wish MINI had a dealership as close to us as the Mazada, VW, Subaru and Honda provide.
