How about a partially loose pipe to one of the vents and slight facia movement with body roll is causing the plastic to move slightly to cause a gap for a draft

I have noticed the same problem in my 05 Ghia. Have you had any result in finding out the cause?

I too have noticed a 'cold draught' when cornering. Thought it was a long lost relative trying to get in touch from the other side but reading this thread makes me wonder?
It is around about the gear lever area and is a definate chilly blow. Only when turning , very strange.
In the summer it probably wont be noticable. Must be a hole in the firewall somewhere.

Hi,
I've noticed this strange phenomenon in my car also, (2.0TDI Ghia) only had it a month so yet to drive it in milder conditions, thought it was just me!

Who says aC-Max has no 'spirit' !
the hairs on the back of my neck say it does, like 'wot pink floyd does when donning cans.
(I know what I mean! I think?)
