2001 Megane Cabriolet Excessive road Noise

Hello all,

My recent purchase a very tidy 2001 1.6 16v cabriolet is a right noisy old thing.

I know very little about cars but a niggle is telling me its not just road noise but maybe a wheel bearing. theres a constant whine at anything above 30 miles an hour and the faster you go the louder it gets. i really can't be sure where its coming from front or rear !! all i am sure of the car had new front discs and pads for the mot in march and new from tyres it had new rear abs sensors too as the car had been off road for several months before i bought it.

I drive mainly dual carriage way and motorway to work and its a noisy experience but the roof is in good nick so other than the usual expected extra noise from a cab this drone is headache inducing.

any ideas ?
