Luckily car was pulled forward enough that rear tailgate did NOT hit the garage door!

Anyone find a explanation OTHER than accidental activation via fob?
I HAVE heard of quircky electrical issues like this occurring on flood-damaged cars where the electricals were submerged and shorted out connections but never on a new car.

Take it to the dealership and let them figure it out. if they can't correct it, get them to lemon it and start over. Never heard of this on ANY other BMW...ever. This is assuming that you bought it new, right?
