I had a 2011 328xi as a loaner 2 weeks ago. --- I made a post about it and people went nuts. see: automatic owners you should be ashamed (plus much more)

In my post, I state how I noticed a whistling "wind" noise when traveling over 35-40 mph with the driver window down.


No way should this ever happen. EVER.

are you kidding me? I buy a 40k vehicle and it is worse engineered than a damn civic or camry? (Ok i know its not worse engineered completely, but wind noise?)

how the hell do they over look this? I drive with my window down ALL THE TIME when its nice out... NO WAY would I accept this as OK.
I have a 08 328 with the different mirrors and i have no problems - perhaps pick up a pair of older e90 mirrors?

if you notice my (08 328) mirrors are MUCH smaller and more "sleek" in design. The new 2011 328 mirrors are big and bulky - they appear to not even match the car. (not a surprise Euro's get the good mirrors and US owner's are once again screwed!!)
