I went to a different dealer in the Bay Area. The foreman rode with me and did find the noise excessive. They kept the car for two days and claim to replace the front driver and passenger side window glass and some other work.
It has made a big difference but still lot of road noise due to run-flat tires. There is still some wind and ambient noise, which in my opinion should not be acceptable in a high-end luxury car, especially a German car. Next time I am going to get a Lexus, I have heard very good things from the owners.
So it turns out that it is up to the discretion of the dealer. The TSB is not a recall. The Dealer guy decides if your car meets the criteria or not.
This is a perfect ground for class action suit, if there are any attorneys here!
