Unhappy Replaced side view mirror and now it's making a ton of wind noise

I recently had my side view mirror taken clean off by a construction crew. Ordered a brand new mirror from Honda and installed it, but now it is making a bunch of wind noise when I get above 35 mph. It's not whistling, but it makes kind of a whooshing noise while driving, very noticeable. When I lost the original mirror there did not appear to be any body damage. What could be causing this? Bolts are tight, not sure what else to check.

If you think a good mechanic is expensive, try hiring a bad one

Recheck your install. Something like you describe ought to be fairly easy to see, huge gaps, gasket out of place, missing foam, etc.
