Weird noise from the windscreen? when driving +130kmh(80mph) #VIDEO#

Sound definetly comes somewhere from the windscreen or mirrors or something, but not from wipers, door-/windowgaskets or sunroof. Video ---> http://jumbo.kuvat.fi/kuvat/BMW+M5+Fixing/IMG_0288.MOV

Any good suggestions?

Change your wiperblades!

My car used to do this and when you operate the wipers the noise will come and go.

Not recently, and the windshield is correctly in place.

Sound doesnt change if you turn wipers on, and wiperblades are new already.

I have that same noise. From my understanding its the dry rotted/cracking seal running on the top of your windshield. This part pulls off, and the new one is reinstalled with pressure alone.

FYI, might not be the issue, but for others searching.... the 'depth' of the windshield within the frame must be precisely set when it is replaced...there is a BMW specific tool/jig for this. If done wrong you can get wind noise.

Jumbo,
did you get a fix for this, mine is doing the same but only 120mph and above. I imagine it will get worse.
