Having owned Pixie for nearly a year just poodling around, with restrictions lifting I've been out and about of late, I've noticed at about the 50/60 mph mark I get a booming/thrumming noise, it's hard to describe. I don't think it's wind and have checked the door seals, windows etc, I suspect it's a trim panel resonating but which one is the likely culprit.
Thanks in advance
