BMW 5 series 1997 - 2003 model is a great car to drive, I rated as the world no 1 sports saloon driving machine. Like any other superb machine, it has some minor "so called defect" that may not be tolerable to all much depends on individual expectation. I am one of those drivers that require perfection in almost every aspect of the machine that I am driving.
The door egde seal create a squeaking sound even the slightest flexes of the door as a result of the door rubber seal rubbing against the body. The temporary fix is by applying a silicone gel around the door seal. Some of the Bimmer owners even change the door edge seal (quite expensive) and the problem seem to appear after several weeks later.
SYSENEG, a company based in Asia discovered that the squeaking sound arising from the door rubber can be eliminated by designing a special synthetic rubber-like seal and positioning the installation of this special material at the right spot. This special high quality rubber-like seal specially cut to fit the 5 series door edge that is called "MFEX" will stick to the door edge preventing the door rubber to rub against the door edge surface of the body. The installation takes about 15 min per door. After you fix it, it will look as though that MFEX formed part of the door edge seal that is fixed to the body. No one will ever notice the add on synthetic rubber-like seal !
In addition to resolving the problem, MFEX will reduce exterior noise since it is more air-tight. You will feel it particularly when you drive at high speed where the air gushing through the door seal will be heard even your door edge seal is still in good condition. With MFEX you will feel the difference !
No need to use silicone paste all the time.
No need to change your door seal even though it is still in good condition ! (a costly affair).

Yes, please tell us the contact info: phone, address, or website to get this stuff. I've taken my 2004 530 BMW into the dealership 5 times and it still creeks. Frustrating!
