anyone else experience "air noise" with the windows up? seems to be coming from the side mirrors, or the rubber triangle in the corner of the windows. cant tell. makes an annoying wooshing sound like a high pressure air leak.

I have the same problem. It whistles ever since I had to have the driver side window replaced when the original one was shattered. It leaks a bit water if I wash it with a high pressure hose. I always assumed it was the new window not lining up correctly with the seals around it.

Same here... I thought it was just the shape of the mirror housing. I've considered just tying a towel around the mirror housing to check it out, but never got around to it.

How about this - does anyone NOT have this?

I noticed my car made that whistling noise as well when I first got it. I forgot about it though because I usually have the volume up on my CD player, or the exhaust reverberates back into the car.(gonna have them fix that when I get new exhaust done) Kinda like when you're taking off in an airplane :( lol

All my mk3's did this. It's just the rubber seal on the window, right at the front.
If you press it hard against the window, the noise should stop. It did with mine

no I doubt it is becuase of targa cause i have a hardtop and the same thing happens to me. I'm replacing all my seals in the car so i think that would fix it.

Hardtop here, and I get the noise.

Perhaps if you re-adjust the window tensioner in the door to put more pressure on the outside seal? I think I'll try that.

Ick... means taking apart my door panels AGAIN. I'm getting pretty damn good at this.
