Cold air through doors? Normal?

Not sure if this is the right section to post this...

I get some cold air blowing through the mirror switches and the top edge of the door pocket on both the driver's and passenger's door. It is most noticeable when the Sunroof is cracked open. It is barely perceptible when the sunroof is closed.

I took it to the dealership today and was told via the service guy that the manager said "before he will commit to opening the doors he will test some other cars to see if this is normal".

"normal"??? air coming through the door? I have to wait until next week to see what they say but I thought I would see if anyone here has noticed this and I just have to live with it.

I only just noticed it because the temps dropped below zero the other day...

I've only had my car a few weeks, so haven't noticed, but I've noticed it on past cars. Normal, I think.

I am not sure if it is normal. But I can certainly detect the wind coming in thru the speakers on the A pillar and also under the door arm rest.

Which seal should I be looking at? I also only detect the problem if the roof is tilted open.

Noticed the same thing last night after taking delivery of my car. I've experienced this on other cars, but they were considerably older so I kind of figured that this wouldn't be an issue. I suppose it's harmless, but it seems strange.

Same thing on my car. Not a lot of air but faintly noticeable. Not enough for me to take it to the dealer. I also have had other cars that were not completely air tight.
