Whiny windows from water encroachment?

    Hi all,

    I've had my X for a few days now and the driving experience, modulo a rather long list of QA issues, has been great.

    Lately I've noticed yet another issue with my car, which is whiny windows. Rolling them up and down produces a rather noticeable squeak, not unlike fingers on a chalkboard.

    I'm wondering if is caused by water intrusion. It hasn't rained since yesterday, but my windows roll back up wet. It seems the wetter the window, the noiser the window. Has anyone else noticed this? Would replacing the weather stripping help?

    It would seem better to ask the service center. Have the X been washed? Not sure what "whiny" means.
