Howl at high speeds?

    There is a very loud howl which sounds it's coming from air passing over the roof of the car at 109MPH. When I go faster, the howl goes away then returns at ~120MPH with the same tone. Has anyone else experienced this, or "knows of someone" that has? It's more of a constant hoooooooot sound like a stuck owl.

    Factors that might come into play here:
    1. Moonroof (closed)
    2. Air suspension lowered at speed
    3. Underbody protection update
    4. Heavy right foot

    I got that too the first time I took it up to that speed...then I realized it was just my wife sitting in the passenger's seat. :redface:
