Window whistle

First time Mini owner is losing the love! I have a Mini One 2011 model purchased with only 500Km on the clock. New Mini Warranty transferred to me with the sale.

Recently the drivers side window has started to whistle as it is not sealing tightly, much worse when air con fan is running. I have had it looked at by the dealer twice (once at point of purchase and secondly at closer dealership). Neither have been able to fix the problem and now second dealership wants me to pay $200 as it is not covered by warranty if they can't find a part which needs replacing.

I have not paid a cent as yet as I firmly believe this should be covered by warranty and also why would I pay when problem is not resolved?
Anyone care to give me an opinion on either the problem or whether or not it should be a warranty case please
