Reducing Wind Noise/Resistence

I feel there's too much wind Resistence/noise coming when I'm driving on the highway with my 'vert. Is there any obvious leaks I should check before replacing the stripping all together? What do you guys think?

I'm talking about the noise when the top is up not down.

There will always be more noise inside a convertible than a hardtop. It's one of the downsides to a convertible, but I've never really thought it was overwhelming myself. I would say, just crank up the volume on your stereo or invest in an exhaust tone you'll want to listen to all day .

Haha I've done both actually in terms of the lining of the convertible, (referring to the stripping), could it be a coulprit?

I would doubt highly doubt that. I'm assuming your car has average wear and tear and I can assure you that the little bit of wear it currently has would most likely not be at fault for the cabin noise. Unless there is substantial damage, the state of the weather stripping won't dramatically affect the noise. I don't know of anything you could do, short of having the convertible top reupholstered with denser and more noise reducing materials.
