    Wet windows / doors retaining water - normal?

    When I go to my car on a dry day when it's been raining a few hours earlier, I find that I'm rolling my windows down and they come back up wet. Is this normal or should I be concerned that the water isn't escaping out the bottom of the door properly? I'm sure I never had this much water on them in my previous car...

    I have this in my 8p. I think it is normal, it is just the felt that gets wet.
