Does anyone know of a fix for the high-pitched whistle that happens at speed from both the side-view mirrors, both driver and passenger? I can stick my finger in the corner where the mirror body meets the arm, and the whistle stops, but since the mirrors fold, I can't figure out how to divert air around the mirror body that won't affect its folding.

Interesting find. Aerodynamics is not always just about diversion but also disruption. Try placing some type of small, upright object using two sided tape in that area to see if that accomplishes the same effect. It probably doesn't have to be that tall, maybe an inch or so in height, to be effective.
Interesting, I have not noticed that noice, but now I will listen for it.

This whistle may be caused by the outer door aero seal not contacting the outer waist seal. The fix is to replace both outer door waist seals with an improved version. There is a bulletin out concerning this.
