Question 2005 645CI Window freezing problem

Has anyone else experienced this and figured out a solution??

I have a 2005 , 645CI ...as you know the window drops down a bit when you open the door and then goes back up when you close it. Nice design for wind noise , etc. when its working properly. Now add winter season to that and freezing temperatures and thats where the fun started for me....

Opened my door the other day, tried to close it....wouldn't close!! Window never came down when I opened the door cause it was frozen so when I went to close the door it wouldn't shut!!!

Grabbed some warm water and poured it along the window edge which a few seconds later loosened up the frozen window....

I'm totally pissed that BMW made a window design like this that can cause a real headache . Now I have to keep a jug of washer fluid in my trunk in case I'm not at home and my window gets stuck in some parking lot or whereever. As well its quite embarassing if I have a passenger with me. They go to open the door and then it wont shut...uughhh!!

REALLY TICKED OFF RIGHT NOW!!!

Only thing I can think of is if my aftermarket window tints are causing the problem ?? But then those are on the inside of the window so im not sure if they would make it stick worse in freezing temps.....considering im pouring warm water down the outside of the window ??

Any help is appreciated here...thanks

try using heater in defroster mode when driving. Warm/hot air is directed towards window keeping it from freezing. This wouldn't hurt to try.

not a unique design... all cars that have frameless windows do this...

all my cars have frozen windows during the winter... I have to warm up the car/heater for them to drop down...

I store my 6 inside the garage to prevent this... if you don't have that option, the water thing is your other option...

it's a small price to pay for having a great summer sports car that you can drive in the winter

Found this item through some message boards....some sort of gel stick that you put on the rubber seal ?
