: : 1995 540i-very annoying wind noise from windshield and/or defroster ducts-can't identify or remedy. Dealer service has given up- says ..."they are all noisy...", suggestions would be appreciated. It's embarrassing to have a Jag owner comment on the noise at speeds as low as 40 mph. Thanks

Try playing with the 3 vent slide controls. I had an annoying air noise inside which was caused by closing down one of the 3 controls (I forget which one). The middle one seems to control most of the flow from the ouside air. Otherwise I've never noticed any "wind noise" per se. I notice a lot of noises that my wife never hears. I guess we all "tune in" to different frequencies. If all else fails you can get a high flow exhast system and drown out your problem with the sound of your glorious 32-valve V8.
