doors ajar on 2002 z3 coupe

Both doors on my 02 coupe do not close snugly. They remain ajar unless closed very hard or pushed in until the latches click. This only started recently with the onset of some cold weather. I have had car for 2+ years and never an issue. It is kept in unheated garage and covered when not used and has 73k on it. I have lubricated the locking mechanisms with triflo and sprayed graphite into the locking cylinders. and Auto locking works when doors are shut tight. Suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Not ready to put it into shop yet. thanks.
