Roof area as in moonroof or roof area as in top of doors? If it's the latter, wipe down the felt that surrounds the windows on the doors.

Thanks for the post and details, that's a good bit of driving.

What are your thoughts on the new A4? Especially compared to your F30?

I've always felt that the F30, both pre-LCI and LCI, is not as insulated from road and ambient noise as the E90. Since you have both in your household, I'm curious if that's your observation as well.
