Mine does that a bit when it's cold, usually occurs under 1/2 throttle. Mine's been whistling for 18 months, it did appear to be gettting worse but recently it's seems to have declined.

Some people describe a noise like a distant police siren, is this similar to yours? I believe that this is a common indicator of worn bearings in the turbo, but the problem can hang around for some time until it becomes terminal.

the noise is there when you accelerate,the normal whistling sound has changed to a kind of whoooo,which stops when i ease off throttle.the car runs fine by the way.i was thinking maybe a loose connection somewhere.
