Unhappy Cluster & Weather Strips on windshield Repair on my 2002 530i

I need to find out how much would it cost me to have the weather strips on my windshield and the cluster repair? I can hear the breeze noise coming through my driver side when I'm driving 65-70 miles on the freeway. Please advise.

Are you sure it's not from a missing jack pad up front? Have you checked?

+1 on the source of the noise.

And what's with a poll on a cost estimate? Contact BMWNA for possible relief on the pixel fix. Some get it and some don't, so be very nice.

thanks,
Somebody has given you a clue to follow. Search, search search!

Road noise associated with missing jack pads is very well documented. Can be solved by installing a new jack pad or using duct tape (not duck tape), the handyman's secret weapon.
