You guys should all take your cars to your service and have those holes covered with the replacement from BMW.

Why those holes were made in the first place and why exactly it was a recall is beyond me.
I've been hearing the 'whistle' sound but thought it's normal. Will check mine & talk to bmw when i have 1st service 2 weeks later.
