If we chose to buy SUV or any vehicles with higher roofline we have to deal with wind noise, with aero dynamic design it is minimised but styling prevents to go too much round edges.
My e83 X3 never exibited such wind noise. Maybe the exterior mirrors were smaller, but the old X3 was much better insulated.
