Drivers side window does not seal on high speeds. Anyone else experience this?

I have had 3 technicians check my car. The third one says its normal and that I should not worry about it. Even though if I roll down the window on the highway then roll it back up it does not seal. I can stick my fingers in that gap. My car is in the shop and the loaner is the same exact model 3 and mine. It does not exhibit this issue at all. Has anyone else experience this and know how to resolve it?

I had same issue at pickup. Any speeds above 40 mph and I would start to get a whistle. My first Appt was a mobile tech. He came out, was able to verify complaint and attempted to fix. After 2 hours he was unable to fix it. Made an in store Appt. The issue was addressed, unfortunetly not completely. If I start driving with the window up. I get no wind noise at all. But if I'm cruising around 60mph than roll the window down than up... It won't seal. The whistling stays until I stop or slow down to below 20-30 mph. Than I have to roll up the Window again and it seals. I've pretty much just given up trying to fix the issues on this car. Such shoddy build qualities.

That sounds like the same issue I have. All they tell me is that they don't see the issue. I drove a loaner with the same year and build date and did not have this issue. I even pushed on the glass when rolling it up going 70 mph and it sealed just fine. Very frustrating when you are dealing with a vehicle that's this expensive.
