Calling B.S. on that one. No matter what the testing nerds proved / disproved on TV or the internet. I worked as a design engineer in automotive. I did A/C audits, testing, etc as part of my tenure at Hyundai-Kia. I also did direct physical, dynamic in car testing too on controlled test tracks. But we can all choose what we want to believe, so I don't expect you to change your belief. Nor am I calling or insinuating any inferiority on your part, or superiority on my part. Just saying I've been there and experienced much automotive engineering research. (I say these things because I don't want to fight / argue or rub anyone the wrong way. I just want peace in my life.)

Unless it's blame hot (that's a southern technical measurement), I suggest you try both left side windows. It's wonderful. I tend to close the windows on the interstates though, as I don't care for all the noise. I use the A/C as needed with the windows up.
Peace be unto us.
