My soft top sqeaks like crazy over potholes...seems as if the windows are seaking when rubbing with the softtopI've had my 330cic ten years now and still love it. It is much "tighter" then the e30 it replaced and has held up well, although it has lived a charmed life and only has 50k miles.
Drawbacks compared to a hard top version are:
- More wind noise than a hard top when the top is up.
- people with legs don't like to be in the back seat.
- Can't fold down the backseat which limits cargo carrying duties
I would highly recommend the wind blocker. Huge difference with it on / off and how much top down freeway driving you can stand.
On the squeaks and rattles, mine does not have any. I had one squeak when the car was under warranty, went to dealer, came back with the same squeak. I spent 30 minutes messing around with the back seat cushion and the squeak was gone and has not come back.
It's a great ride and the prices have really come down.

I have the same thing but from autoglym...problem is its in a spray form...Try this stuff:
BMW used to have their own version available from the dealer and I still have some of that. I apply every fall to all door, window, hood, trumk and convertible seals as well as channels for the glass on the convertible top.
