Wind noise

Sure this topic has been discussed many times before but I am just curious if with the proliferation of mobile phones anyone has actually done any measurements... Mine screams at almost 100 db at 90mph. Most of it is wind noise from the windows, the hood sights tight enough. Curious...

90mph on a French motorway were the limit is 80mph but, and I know it is not an excuse, I only did 90 for a short overtake. Too much noise to cruise at that speed for hours.

I have a windstop, the OEM one, but this was with the roof up. Unfortunately the weather was not very good. The noise is from the front seals. I wonder if convertible 911s etc also do that kind of noise or is the design of the hood different?

i can honestly say that wind noise is not that bad for me, even at 90. my roof is a tight taut fit and the windows don't really have any gaps. you can certainly hold a conversation with a passenger at that speed without shouting. maybe you roof fitment is not as good
