I came across a post in this forum, which said this was a know issue in X3s manufactured before June of 2011.

It is apparently due to a leaky mirror gasket. I took the car to the dealer yesterday and I was told that there was a bulleting on this. But they did not have any parts becasuse it is such a common occurence.

Did any of you get yours fixed? And did it make the cabin quieter?

Mine is just outside the build dates for the bad gaskets. They tried adding more insulation where the mirrors are attached but I still have wind noise and hear the traffic as though it's a wet day (when it is in fact dry). It has to be the door seals. I'm still investigating with the dealer.
