    Shan,

    Just saw your latest photo on this thread - car is looking good!

    Do you get whistling from the Rhino Platform? I just got the same size Rhino platform on my 2013 Kakadu and there's a distinct whistle at anything over 50km/hr, if you have just the glass closed (or open too of course). If you close the interior panel underneath the glass you can no longer hear the whistle - but why have a sunroof if you can't see through it! I have the Rhino front & side rail kit fitted too (http://www.rhinorack.com.au/products...-2b-7b-_43163b) so I'm trying to figure out if the whistle is coming from that or the platform itself. I do also have a Rhino Sunseeker awning but it was on my 120 Grande and didn't whistle there so I don't think that's the cause.

    Reminds me, I have to go out and source a new set of Quickfists, you got my old ones as a bonus (bloody Loctite). Looks good hey!

    I have the longer platform and don't notice any whistling with my sunroof open either slide or tilted. Have not tried it with the front rail yet but I also have an awning fitted so I doubt it's your awning.

    Thanks Kurt!!

    It might be the front and side rail kit... I can't hear any whistling on mine at any speed. (just the wind break)
    I do have the awning on the side as well so don't think it would be that.

    Thanks Shan and Fido666 for the replies on the whistling or lack of. Sounds like the rail kit might be the cause, will try removing it and see if the whistle disappears.

    I removed the front/side rail kit from the Pioneer Platform and the whistling problem has gone. Now only a very slight whistle can be heard even with the sunroof fully open (you do get a bit of other wind noise but the annoying whistle is gone). The guys at Roof Racks Galore Kedron were helpful and have taken back the rail kit.
