    Mostly up, but down 30mm in summer.

    (Tinted glass is cooler in Summer that with windows down. The 30mm drop allows good cabin airflow circulation.

    Drivers always down, passenger depending on daily wind/sun/rain ratio.
    This combo is also varied to enhance the audible ambience as i run up and down the gears. Its the best part of driving a VW.
    No music, ever.

    Must be the wrong models guys. Splits do it sideways and safaris only fully up when parked at the beach !

    When I travel 90+km/h the my van is so noisy I dont understand why?

    I cant even hear the motor... Is this normal or do I have a problem, I even tried new front door seals which made it quieter.

    Have you thought of aids to hear:p. If you can't hear the dak dak you must have a great muffler:rolleyes:.
    Seriously:rolleyes:. It's a 76. Look at your front door frame 'mating'. Bet it's kicked out at the rear base so seal doesn't meet/mate. All that above the back of the front wheels where the noise is:p:D.

    Cheers

    The seals mate alright, it really hard to shut the doors at the moment with the new seals, getting easier slowly but no gaps, just lots of noise.
    Oh and the muffler is still original stock but quite loud....

    You're moving/pushing a lot of "air" in an object with essentially a flat front and poor aerodynamics :eek:
