No noise in my 03 GT at these or higher speeds. Sounds like you are not getting a good seal on your sun roof.

Our Sun Roof is quiet, the boss lady cruises the interstate at 80+ and no noise what so ever. Lub the seals and try again.

Do you have the interior panel for the roof closed? In my neon it's really loud if you don't close it. Mind you w/ solid motor mounts sunroof noise is a bit of a mute point.

If it doesn\'t fit get a hammer. If it still doesn\'t fit, get a bigger hammer. - Jesse James

I just got a chance to open it up for the first time on the way out and back from Palm Springs. I had everything closed up tight but about 80-85 I was getting a real loud whistle when I was in a cross wind. I didn't notice so much when there was no cross wind.
