Has anyone experienced wind noise coming from the top corners of the passenger and drivers windows when driving an excess of 180km/hr?

I recently when on a road trip and i noticed that after 180 wind noise started to increase as if air was leaking in through the windows.

I read in this forum to adjust the window angle, should i just buy the new door (number 9) seal to solve the problem?

I had this issue too, and noticed my door had come a little out of alignment. I adjusted the latching mechanism and now my door sits flush again and the wind noise is almost totally gone.

You mean window alignment or door alignment?

You can adjust both

Window - underside of the door, remove cap, and adjust window inward or out

Door - you can loosen the latch, and fine tune the closure

OP, are you periodically conditioning the seals & gaskets? If they start to get dry and brittle, air gets by and makes weird noises.

Try slightly adjusting your window.

On the underside of the door there is a black round plug. Remove this plug and it will allow access to the mounting location of the glass on the regulator.

What are you using to condition? 303 aerospace here and maybe black wow (?) as well. Don't have it in front of me. Been a while.

I use GPL 250 and Nextzett grease and I have 2008 e93. They look and function brand new.

Is this pretty easy to do?
