High Pitched sound for 2022 Plaid

Hi, first time for the post,

I was wondering any Plaid or Refresh Model S owner experiencing high-pitched whine sounds at cruising speed? It's noticeable and a bit uncomfortable cursing around 35-45 or highway speed like 60-75 mph. Coming from a MYP owner, I can understand how a motor whining sounds like, which I actually really enjoy with. The current high-frequency sound feels like driving with a MY without the 2nd row seat cushion insulation in place. I really would like to get more feedback from the Refresh owner before making a SC visit.

I took delivery of a LR last Wednesday and have noticed a staggered whining with mild acceleration at 30-40 MPH. Neither the 2016 Model S I traded in nor our Model Y exhibit this. It’s not especially loud but noticeable and annoying. I’m somewhat relieved that it seems that it’s a common issue and not a major mechanical flaw, but I‘m tempted to set up an appointment to see what the SC says about it.
