Congrats on the new car and the Welt delivery! I am sorry that you car seems to have this flaw. Though I am glad you knew about it ahead of time. I just don't see how BMW quality control has missed this so many times and has yet to at least put something out to dealers about the mass reported issue.
Are you taking your new car back while there for them to look at? Enjoy the car and your trip to Germany
