So everytime i drive with the windows down, there's a slight "whistling" sound, which seems to be coming from the passenger side. I have no idea what is it.

I'm not really looking to fix it as it doesn't really bother me but i'm just curious what's making that sound...?

Thoughts?!

most likely your a pillar trim is coming up a bit at some part.

I had a similar sound and it turned out to be a piece of flimsy cardboard paper stuck in the area by the windshield wiper. Some idiot put an advertisement for dry-cleaning under my wiper blade but it must have been pushed so far down that I couldn't see it when I looked at the car. So annoying. Anyway, lift the wiper and take a peek. You never know :) Good Luck

Mine was the pillar was separated from the windshield. Removed it and added a bead of silicon glue on the outside edge - never happened again. Easily removed it with a blade when switching to HKFEVER's carbon fiber pillars.

What Plack said... Same issue with mine, first A-pillar whistled, second creaked, found out neither had any adhesive/sealer between the cover and the window. Replaced with CF covers and added a bead of silicon adhesive, problem solved.
