Air buffeting or a whistle are pretty common with Element windshield replacement. The person I bought my Element from had the windshield replaced so I would have a pristine one. Driving home (about 7 hours 55MPH) I thought the radio was putting out a weird noise. Tuning in to EOC showed me people who had been ready to sell their Elements due to this. I ended up driving back to the city of origin and took the car to windshield replacement shop. They added sealant to the top strip and Voila - no whistle. But, now I have yet another new windshield and I have wind buffeting at ~55+ MPH. I need to go back that local shop and ask for a fix. Probably when I ask them to fill a rock chip.
There are a lot of threads about the trim flying away after windshield replacement, so buffeting could be happening.
You might tape (temporarily) across the top strip and see if the buffeting stops. .
