If the weather strippign is new, then it might work a little, but our cars have minimal wind noise compared to a lot of the new american and jap cars :|.

I was thinking the same thing, this past winter the wind noise has seemed a little louder. My weather stripping looks a little more compressed this year for some reason. I'm going to try and adjust the door's to sit a little tighter to the door frame's and see if that helps.

I'm getting some horrible wind noise from what seems to be the windshield, I'm thinking it may have been replaced at some point, by a sub par company. It's not the sunroof, nor is it the side view mirrors. I doubt it's my doors, but I'll have to take a look.. the noise is coming from the windshield, but noises like this can be misleading, I'll rig something up to help determine if it's my doors.

you take off the front fenders, loosen the hinge bolts and adjust, then tighten them back.

that's the easiest way.

this is for the front doors obviously, rears are easier
