205 trunk lid needs a little help to close.

Very similar to MJS' testing. My 2005 X3 trunk lid doesn't close on its own. I have gotten use to giving it just a little push when it is closing to shut without a slam.

Cool BMW Buyer Survey.

FWIW I would try this.

Plan A - you did say you would meet them at 20 points.

First, I would treat the CA and the dealership like they are family, you did sign the contract. :angel:
