Do you find you have to slam your doors to close, and/or they are not closing easily?


Thanks in advance.

I have an F10 and my driver's side door (no soft-close option) was difficult to close; i.e. often when I tried to swing it shut it wouldn't latch. Point being it's not just a frameless window issue. My other doors close fine. I was going to bring it back but was afraid that my dealer's crew would have to remove the door card and all the associated gimmickry and would, as a result, cause many more problems (e.g. leaks, switches not working). So I've left it and, frankly, it has loosened up considerably over the six months I've had the car. There are still times when, say, a parking attendant or other valet will try to swing the driver's door shut and it won't latch, but lately those times have been few and far between.

Just FYI.
