Yup, nothing to be done other than wasting your time

I too am having wind noise of the drive side. The passenger side is fine. Today while looking around, I noticed the passenger side has the following insulation in the door while the drive side does not. Can anyone confirm that it's supposed to be there?

Just got my new F30 328I msport over the weekend. 10 miles on it which was sweet. I notice wind noise if I don't turn on anything, radio, AC etc. I think it really depends on people's tolerance to it. I don't mind it at all. I typically have the radio on, so I even hear even less, barely notice it.

Went to the dealer today to discuss the fender insulation. I took a look at early built cars where neither side had insulation to recent built sedans only having it on the passenger side. I took a look at a new 4, both sides had the insulation. The service advisor and I were rather perplexed. Guess I'll let them have another stab at fixing it. I get the sense that that extra insulation would help, going to see if I can push them to put it in. Worse case I will see if I can order and put it in myself.

Crapola. I've had my f30 for about a month now and I've been meaning to post about this. I even took it into the dealer, they checked the seals and cleaned them and everything with no luck. They said the techs drove an exemplar car and noticed the same thing. What a crock! This is a known design flaw yet BMW hasn't done anything to address it?!

Thanks for the info and picture. I am not near my car now to check out the insulation on my 2013 M-Sport, but will check tomorrow.

My wind noise is is on the passenger side.

Although it's not a big deal and does not bother me too much, when our car was new and I was sitting in the passanger side, I thought that a window was slightly open when I first heard it. I then thought that it was due to the outside mirror. When I brought it up to the Service Advisor at our local dealer, it was just shrugged off.
