If it's most noticable when in neutral rolling down hills then maybe it's just part of the aero's on the car causing the noise?!
main things I can point out is the noise is definatly low decibles and its only there when between 37-43 mph, this tells me it cant be anything to do with the axels or im sure it would just gets worse at higher speeds. I think the best thing I can do it go down a hill and turn the engine off.

If the noise is still there its definatly not the engine.e

When i have the windows up and I can hear it its coming from close to me or just behind me ( but saying that I never sat in the passanger seta, maybe thats worth a try ). I recently had the wheel off my side front.

When I acellerate past 41mph ish the noise starts to quietent down and drown out, Same as if Im doing 40 and I slow down using the brakes it drowns out and doesnt just cut out but quietens down then becomes nothing and non exsistant

Its the most faint sound I can hear just above the engine and not boasting again but probably due to my hearing or I wouldnt hear it.
