    Wind Pressure

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    I've noticed that even with two back windows opened half way that you need to open the driver and front passenger window to get rid of that really annoying air pressure in the cabin. Opening the pano also helps. I often need to keep the back windows open for our dog. I'm wondering if anyone else has experienced this and come up with a solution to reduce the problem?

    Window vent visors will help against wind noise. We have them installed on our Audi and its works really well. You can just add them to the rear windows instead of all four and its very easy to install.

    Do these help with that thudding noise you hear and the pressure in your ears that you experience?

    Yes they do help with the wind buffeting noise as long as you don't roll the window all the way down.

    OK, I installed them today. Yet to take it for a test drive but will report back. Not that easy to install due to small parts and large hands.

    Follow up. I installed the window shields and while there is some improvement, there are still instances where the buffeting noise is intense and very uncomfortable. This is an unfortunate design flaw.

    I haven't found any true way to remove the buffeting yet and I've read that as cars become more aerodynamic, the worst the buffeting becomes.
