Thanks for more confirmation Bob. I've been contemplating stopping by the dealer for a test drive, just to see if I can notice any other cars doing it too. The noise does bug me, but I'd feel a lot better if "it's supposed to do that."
I also have this annoying little hairline horizontal scratch on my windshield, about 1.5" long. Noticed it after I was a few miles away from picking up the car. Maybe worth mentioning? I don't want to end up being "that guy" with all the nit-picky problems right off the bat though lol
