W222 S500 4 Matic
Extreme wind noise at higher speed

I have really annoing problem with wind noise in cabin... My car is W222 S500 (S550 in US) 4-Matic with an optional acustic glass... Its seems wind noise come from the front area of front door or from A pillar area... Its really annoing when you driving at highway or riding at speed above 70mph... Driving at speed above 100mph (in EU its normal highway speed) is imposible othewise after 15 minutes your head will explode!
Dealer tried to adjust both front door, probably for better fit to seal... almost no change... and told don't know where is the problem ...

Did anyone successfully solved this problem, thanks for any advice?!

S450, Lexus NX200t
Lexus had a similar issue with the last generation of the LS. It turned out to be the seal behind the black triangle at the front of the window. The fix was to remount the part with silicone sealer.
The funny part of the story is the identification and the fix came from a retired engineer, not Lexus. He was always mad that they never gave him credit even though they used his solution.

I have a 2016 S550 and have the exact same issue. My wind noise sounds like it's coming from passenger side front door but mine starts over 90 mph. At 130 mph it sounds like I am in a convertible! Haven't tried to dial in where it is just yet. Please post if you find it.
