Bought an 09 Boxster a few weeks ago. It's a wonderful car. Over the last week or so sometimes I hear a whistling sound that appears to come from the front...engine speed or MPH does not change the sound. The brake pads are fine. Clutch in or out... no change...just tap the brake and the sound is gone. It may or not come back for a day or so. It went away for a few days...driving yesterday the sound came back and I noticed that turning the wheel to the right made the sound stop...for a while. It starts at about 20 mph.

The brakes are very strong.

Any thoughts?

Does it make a difference if the brakes are wet? If the Brake pads are not worn down to the brass rivets it may be the pads have a glaze on them similar to a high polish. If so you can take the pads off and rough up that polish with some emery cloth. If that doent work your pads may have steel shavings in them causing them to whistle.
