The wind noise in my wifes X3 drives me crazy. It's quieter with the panaramic S/R in the "vent" position driving down the freeway than it is closed shut. :dunno: Is this common?

Everything closed gives me the quietest ride. I was sort of surprised how noisey it is with only the shade part (not sure of it's official name) open.

The vent position should always be noisier than closed for obvious reasons.

Closed is the most quiet. If it is not in your case - then something is amiss.

Vent in my experience or the double vent open is always pleasant at any speed - it provides access to exterior sounds.

Any other full or partial open position is noisier. Cracking open one of the windows when buffeting appears - reduces that noise. Much depends on the speed in the open variations.

In vent mode - open the sunshade layer and check to see if the velcro strips are still in place. Mine detached slightly in the recent warm weather. I pressed them back into place and all is fine.
