Opening glove box

When you open your glovebox,

Does it open smoothly and slowly or does it open all at once with a sudden movement?

My brother's 06 325 opens really smooth but my 02 745 doesn't. Just curious if there's something wrong with mine

Smooth and slowly. It probably still under the 100K warranty. Take it in.

The schock struts may be worn or broke. They provide resistance so the box opens slowly.

Thank you all for your feedback.

I'm taking it in tomorrow for an oil change so I'll tell them about the glove box
