Default Wind noise at 90mph

I noticed that with my Xenon spoiler on my car a wind noise at high speeds, I thought this was supposed to "reduce" wind noise?????[:I]

Sure it wasn't a police siren you were hearing?

Hmmm, 90 MPH, huh? That is at least 15 MPH over the legal speed limit in some states. If it doesn't make noise at posted speed limits, then, it is within specs.

the spoilers are designed for looks first. i wouldnt be surprized if it actually created lift and increased drag.

i wont flame you for enjoying your car, just wondering if it will still make noise at 110

Enjoy your Xenon spoiler and forget about the wind noise as it may well be part of the "performance package". Hmmmmmmmmm...90mph!!!??? [:0] That's a little on the "slow-side" [B)] for an "S1 Car"! Enjoy and drive safely. [8]

Increase speed until:

Noise stops

Limiter engages

Tickets get too cost prohibitive

or

Decrease speed until:

Noise stops

Fuel mileage increases

Safety factor goes up

Fun factor goes down

Possibly, but just maybe that new engine he recently had installed

isn't working properly!
