This is normal. Just did the same repair on my car and had the same issue. Some people say if you don't unhook the electric motor, you don't have to calibrate the window. I call total BS on that.

I just had Koni FSD's installed on my car and it greatly improved comfort and handling. I purchased all 4 shocks for $585 and it cost me almost $600 for install and alignment.

I had a similar issue many years ago under warranty. There was a "home position sensor" that had to be replaced in the mirror.

Shocks are not "fine" until 150K. Try a new set of shocks and then tell me the old ones are "fine". Just replaced my original shocks with Koni FSD. I had no idea how bad the originals were. :thumbup:

I had all of the exhaust lifters replaced under warranty last year due to lifter tap on cold start up. It is a known issue on 2007 328i's. I don't know if other years are affected.

For $5 you can use Eagle 1 Wadding Cloth and turn the original gray fence post tips into nicely polished stainless. I touch mine up twice a year and they always look great.

It's a known issue with 2007 models that they had a bad batch of exhaust lifters. I just had mine replaced 2 weeks ago at 28k miles under warranty.

Just had the lifters replaced in my '07 328i Sedan this week. The valves were tapping on cold mornings. I'm just glad it's still under warranty!
