I have been noticing the same on my Coupe Quattro...

potential solution:

I noticed that both front doors have "settled" (the rear of the doors no longer
properly align with the rest of the body.  I need to adjust the
hinges and door strikers.  This should "raise" the door and diminish, if
not completely solve the wind noise and/or leak...
