I can't say I've noticed that sound - when the card is inserted in my car, I get a pressurising sound (which I assume to be the fuel pumps priming the injectors before start-up) - it comes from the bulkhead, so that would tie-in with my theory.
There may be a short occuring in the sensor area (remember, your mirror has the photochromic dimming function). It would be best to get that checked whilst its in - it may even be causing the radio interference.
Have you spotted another Vel Satis yet whilst driving yours?
I always give a wave - sad, I know!
This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
