never could get the one around glass roof to stay on. First time I hit the interstate it partially blew off. I haven't tried to put it back on since.

So we know that the newest 3s are quieter than older models, but has anyone reverse engineered what they did to reduce the noise?

I posted this in another thread-- I used automotive pin stripe instead of the rubber (as difficult as a condom to install) not saying it's quieter.. but sure looks seamless (which should help with air/flow) and it won't shrink in the sun - and 9 bucks a roll?? try it guys.

I only did the seams (width of vehicle) not length. (resistance of air only)

FYI- mines been on for 5 months. wet/heat -- driving. works! it's pin stripe which is designed for the elements.. and take a smaller piece of that tape and cover your windshield VIN (tape to outside of glass) looks better and hides the vin. (for what its worth)
