Yes, I've replaced one of my fuses three or four times now. It's fuse #63 I think. It's a 15amp fuse. Every couple months when I lock the doors, one of them makes a funny sound--like a quick...

Yup, I had an e34 for years and it didn't have that button. I'll bet it does something to the lights. Can you look under the dash to see where the wires go?

I'm confused. Why should Geico, i.e., your insurance company, pay if it was the other guy's fault? Shouldn't you be making a claim with the other company? Or was the other company also Geico?

Agreed. I don't notice true wind noise either. I was guessing that he meant the problem I've had, which I suppose is more aptly described simply as "wind."
