Re: 147 Wind Noise
In Cape Town we get wind blowing every now and then, so sometimes I hear wind noise. .i.e. driving 120km/h into a 60km/h wind gives a 180km/h wind noise. If you really travel at 180km/h you usually concentrate on the road rather than the noise. I find most my noise comes fomr the tyres. I even tried Yokohama decibel quiet tires once and stil lthe tyre noise bothered me. So I guess I do not have a lot of wind noise then, but then again I have an old 2002 model.
I had a Honda with high wind noise and eventually found that teh rubber around the windscreen came slightly loose (only visible on close inspection. Once I tucked it in the moise was gone.
Just to add that I've confused an uneven worn tyre noise for wind noise before as well, perhaps you can look at it if you think its a possibility.
