Window Issue

I purchased my 07 328i from a dealer back on the first, on my way home I rolled my rear drivers side window down and it took for ever to get it back up I had to keep playing with the switch, I took it to the dealer where I bought it the next day and they sent me to the BMW service center, they were paying for any repair to fix it, I take it to BMW drop it off and they call me the next day saying nothing is wrong and it works fine for them they rolled it up and down over 50 times, and when I picked it up they rolled it up and down more with me there well tonight I rolled it down to check and well it took for ever to go back up again, I'm calling tomorrow wondering if anyone else had this issue?

Most likely a failing regulator. They generally fail over time rather than suddenly.

Thanks, I'm calling the dealership in the morning and hopefully they'll get me in soon so I can get it fixed, and they are paying for it so that isn't going to be the issue.

Well I took it in to the shop today, they couldn't reproduce the problem! they did fix my battery cable recall and gave me a 335I loaner, which wasnt a comfortable car! It was an m sport though pretty fun to drive but I rather have my standard transmission, well after I drove away from dealership upset I rolld my window down and reproduced it myself, went right back to the dealership and we finialy got it to do it again but since they already closed my service ticket they said I have to make another appointment and bring it back in. and since its being covered on a warrenty that expieres when I hit 64,200 miles Im at 63,200 so i have to resist the urge to drive around town till may 13th!
