If you firmly close the door, it just closes like a normal door. Is this normal?
This new software update has changed the programming for it, my early software acted the same way as you describe. BMW probably did the change to help reduce wear and tear on the soft close door motors and parts as they would work with every single door shut and open, now it works about 50% of the time thus doubling life.
