Not for the Volvo C70. I recently test drove a 2011 C70 and ran it through a touchless high pressure car wash. Not a single leak anywhere. Not even at the seal between the two side windows where you would expect a leak to occur due to the absence of anything structural to compress the seal with. You could take the current edition Z4 through a high pressure touchless car wash and it would perform similarly to the Volvo. The seal design on the E93 is just not up to what it should be.
