Meh, seems fine. 255's on the back produce more tyre noise than the 225's but not an enormous difference. Wind noise is fine and far better than the E90, which really got noisey after 100mph. Thing is, 90% of our roads in the UK are fucked, so it's tyre noise that's the issue, not wind. Get it into Europe and on the nice modern, regulation quiet motorway tarmac and it's lovely quiet! RARELY get this tarmac in the UK.

Consider yourself lucky with one of the wind tight F30's. Over 80 kph I get obtrusive wind noise at the top of my b-pillar. I got the car in March 2013 and they have yet to be able to fix it. Neither of my e90's had wind noise at all. Road noise is really dependent on the road surface and varies from quiet to moderately intrusive, but it is the wind noise that is most bothersome. Both my wife and I are continuously pulling on the window buttons to try to close them tighter.
