I am glad to learn that there is something you can still do with one US$

here in Canada 150+ you'll get copped for stunt driving, car impound and butt fcuked by insurance, I also believe some HIGHER speeds have seen suspended prison sentances

and if you really feel the need for that kind of speed sir can I suggest a race track
a PUBLIC highway, is just that, you are sharing the road with other people, no matter how good you drive, you cannot account for blow out, sudden failure, or other driver error.

That kind of speed is HIGHLY irresponsible and gives all of us a bad name.

Albeit on the autobahns have a "no speed limit" you can still get done for dangerous driving

If you and I mean "collective you" wanna drive like morons that's fine and if you wanna get a lift home in a body bag that's fine to, just don't kill me or mine in the process

oops sorry I forgot Darwin's Law

never mind, forget my post... carry on.... evolution will win out here

Can't these windows be adjusted by Bmw to fix this issue ? Or this is caused the rubber part that looses its original positioning ?

Yes, the windows can be adjusted but what works best is to replace the rubber gaskets around the B-pillar. 2nd best is to use a tube slid up inside the gasket to firm up the gasket - making a tighter, better (window)seal.

I just wanted to say that this IS NOT the problem seal in my car.

In mine, the seal that is on the shadowline trim has collapsed near the back of the window. This lets the window move slightly.
I don't know exactly but from the RealOEM pictures I think I'm talking about #51767164949 and #51767164950. Which they call a "Roof Frame Gasket".
Unless it's attached to the trim and sold with it.

Anyway, if you're in a warm climate then the same tubing inside the seal can work here. 3/16" is the size tubing you're looking for.
You will not be able to use Dack's trick in conjunction with mine. It will pinch the window and it will not close all the way.

Also you have to make sure the window goes all the way up. This will put more pressure on it and it can hang up. Being in a warm climate reduces this because the tube is more pliable.

You'll want to lubricate the tube heavily. It's about a 3' push to reach the end of the gasket and that is quite a bit of friction.
