Discovered Chip in Driver's Side Door Glass: Warranty?

Hi guys,

I spent this weekend detailing my brand new 2003 330Ci (just picked it up last weekend). Upon cleaning the driver's side door window, I noticed a small chip (about 1mm) at the very top ridge of the glass. It appears to be a defect in manufacturing or it was damaged at the factory.

Question: Will BMW replace this under warranty and if so, is it advisable for me to pursue this? I have heard many stories of people bringing in their cars for warranty repairs only to have more things broken in the process.

Iíll try and take some pics later.

I don't think that this will be covered under the warranty unless you can prove that the problem existed at the time of delivery. Nevertheless, contact your client advisor and ask - you have nothing to lose.
