I left the car with them and collected it later in the day. All I can say is that it is very nice to drive without the constant crackling noises from the doors. It was a simple fix - they applied a treatment to the felt seals.

Prior to this I had cleaned all seals with water and had applied Gummi Pflege to the rubber seals. This had marginally reduced the noise.

If you are experiencing these noises from the doors in your F30 I suggest a trip into your dealership and get the felt treated.
Where is the felt, on the inside of the door jam with the weather seals, or??

I have the crackling on the passenger side, the tech ended up opening it all up and sealing some loose things up with butyl glue (according to the sheet), and it still crackles...

If it's something I can do, I'd much rather...
