Roll in Park?

Anyone notice their car roll back or front somewhat after engaging park? Just started noticing this for the first time this week.

It have noticed that happen a few times. Not sure why. Even on relatively flat surfaces it sometimes does that.

My always rolled ever so slightly. Most of my cars do. I just got used to pulling the E brake before hitting park on my 7 series.

Isn't it a good practice to always use the park brake? I do.

Thanks for your replies, Gentlemen. This just started happening and shouldn't, as my other cars, which are older and which I drive and park in the same way, don't experience this.

To those who experience this, has it always happened or did it develop in time?

I remember having this "lurching" problem with my 300c back in 2005 and no one could ever figure why it would do it. I just got in the habit of using the parking brake every time I park so it doesn't bother me that much.
