I have also noted excessive wind noise from the drivers side/ mirror area, despite the fact that the screen surround isnt fixed properly on the Passenger side!
Just thought I`d give an update on the wind noise problem on my 159. As described above, the noise on the driver side was just excessive (whistling wind above 80-90 km/h) - eventhough the passenger side was dead quiet.
Took it to the dealer and let them drive it, they agreed. They traced it back to the door mirror, where they suspected something on the inside was loose. I took it back in last week so they could fix it proper, but they discovered that it was going to be a mess to take the mirror apart. So now they`ve ordered a new one and will install it soon.
I know that the new mirror will fix the noise though, as they taped off the mirror now and everything is quiet. Good thing I have a black car though, as otherwise that black duct tape would look pretty shabby
In the meantime I had another problem which I`ve seen described on here: plastic trim on the lower B-pillar coming unstuck. They also checked this out and apparantly the clips were broken. Must have been like that out of the factory as it`s not something you ever touch. This will also be replaced.
So all in all excellent service: helpful staff, correct diagnosis and everything will be fixed under warranty. Since they`ve done such a good job, I think I`ll probably order a few things out of the accessories catalogue and have them install that when I bring in the car for the fixes
(or maybe it`s just because I want to buy some toys for my car :P ).
