You may want to try picking up some Krytox off amazon and rub it well into the seals after cleaning them. Adjusting the door striker may cause other undue problems. Here's a link to the Krytox:

This is the same branded stuff used by the Chevy dealerships for their squeaky roof panels in the Vette as well as the Volkswagen dealerships for the $hitty EOS roof panels. I applied it last October when I first got the Zed and have been squeak free, it really keeps the seals moist.

If you want to adjust the window inwards at the top, there is an adjustment bolt at the bottom of the door covered by a plastic cap. This bolt moves the bottom of the window track in or out over a range of about 10mm, causing the top of the window to move in the opposite direction against the window seal.

Also have a small air/water leak, did an adjustment on window on the driver side it got better but over a month the wind noise is back.

Based on recommendations on this post and reading around I did to get the Krytox High-Performance Lubricant. it came out to $44, not cheap but if the wind noise goes away well worth it.

I will post updates after it arrives and I apply it.
