In Reply to: Ron - What are the parts you are referring to ? posted by Curious on March 26, 1999 at 13:25:58:

: : : Roshan

: : Roshan, my wind noise is almost completely gone after fixing the plastic trim, but i have heard the early e34 mirrors produced more wind noise than the later design (post '93). Shouldn't be noticeable until you get over 80-90 mph...might want to check your weatherstrips or possibly some loose chrome, otherwise these cars are pretty quiet at speed.

: Ron

: I am not sure what the weatherstrips and the loose chrome refer to - I am guessing the weather strip is the rubber part aroud the door which helps it keep shut. No idea about the chrome ??

: Thanks

Check the areas near the mirror and at the top of the door. It happened on my old 325i, haven't seen it much on the 5-series. Just a small separation can cause much noise.
