If it starts every time at around 80km/h and sounds like hard plastic vibrating on something, it could very well be plastic vibrating on something indeed. Have you checked for instance that the plastic parts on the lower side of your left doors and on your left wheel arches are fixed tightly ?

Good you found what it was, you going back to the dealer to fix it? Shouldn't have nuts coming off by themselves, unless they were removed for service access and left off by oversight/carelessness.
