Road/Wind Noise?

I have a 2011 135i that I use as my daily driver. I perceive a large amount of wind noise coming from the passenger side door or window. I've checked the seal of the door and the window and found no obvious gaps, but when I drive it sounds as if the window is down 1/8th of an inch or so.

2 questions:
Has anyone else experieced this? I've tried rolling the window down and up several times.
What could be causing it?

Thanks!

I've had same thing on my 2011 135i and 2010 128i both on passenger side. Took both to the dealer and they've replaced door seals....
Now nice and quiet

I had this exact thing and the dealer supposedly adjusted the window to sit slightly more inward to I guess have a tighter seat against the seal. But i am still noticing some slight wind noise from the same spot now, maybe not as bad, but still. And I know its there too because I hear nothing from the drivers side and its not the sunroof either.

Something easy to check....does the window do the little down/up dance when you open then close the door? Mine would drop the 1/4 down while driving, and I wouldn't notice it.

Thanks for the info, guys! I've had the dealer replace both door seals and it's still quite noisy. Not sure if it's the door or the window.

To answer some questions: yes, it does do the "little dance" when the door is opened and closed. I've also tried the motor reset that someone suggested earlier.

It's still very prevalent - going to get it checked out again.

I noticed that my windows would go up when I open then close and lock my door after a 35 mile drive home. I thought this was quite strange but my car is brand new so I thought this was some kind of BMW thing lol. It looks like I have to call the dealer and get it fixed. Thanks for the tip.
