Drivers side does look a bit low.

Those pics illustrate the point actually.

The rear door here needs the seal moving forward



and the front door here needs the seal moving up



You'll get a fair bit of wind noise (relative to the rest of the car) from both of those gaps.

I bought a whole upper frame including the window lift mechanism (excluding motor and glass) a while back from our sponsors and it was way under 100.
Best give them a call and discuss exactly what you need.

All adjusted, slight improvement but seems like sunroof is the main cause. Seal might have shrunk over the years and now there is a gap, there is no adjustment is there? As in make sure it sits flush?
