Excessive wind noise

I recently entered the world of BMW owner. I purchased a low mileage 2016 X1. During the test drive I didn't notice it at first but after having the car for a couple of weeks I've noticed a lot of wind noise coming from the passenger side door. Has anyone else experienced this and have you been able to correct the issue.

If it's only one side, have a look carefully at the door seals to make sure they're well fitted and not ripped/distorted.

Maybe also check the window is closing perfectly..

I guess that's not a bug/problem, it is how some BMWs are.

my 2017 X1 28xi is getting huge amount of wind noise when I consider BMW as a luxury brand.
However I learned that lesson when I got X4 as a loaner which is $70K car - almost twice as much as fully loaded X1, just doesn't have acoustic glass to keep it less quite.

It was getting the same amount of wind noise to be honest. Only X5/X6 was way different and the real luxury starts in number 5

Too exaggerated. $70K is not even twice as much as a base XDrive. "Fully loaded" means loaded with every option, it would be around $50K for the X1. Mine is a generously optioned at just over $45K. $35K is lower than a base xDrive28i.

X1 fully loaded is $45K - X4 loaner (it wasn't fully loaded ) but MSRP is $70K

even you compare base vehicles - X1 is $32-36K and X4 is $51K

Other than that, buttons on the steering wheel feels like KIA, no feeling, sound or feeling. If you have used E90 - Chris Bangle era cars, you will understand what I mean.

I will keep buying BMWs because of Motorcycle + Car duo but new era of this car brand lost its mojo/identity.

My old F21 had an issue with wind noise after I'd had a windscreen replacement. Could never get to the bottom of it, but I was glad to see the back of the car in the end as it used to drive me mad.

I also have a low mileage 2016 X1. No wind noise from any of the doors.

If it is the seal, you might also consider applying one of the rubber cleaner/rejuvenation products.
