I bought a 2004 330 BMW 4dr with the perfomance pkg. And owning a BMW, I would expect the utmost quality. Here is a situation (among others):

I noticed my driver's side rear door "clonks" everytime I closed the door. Sometimes, you have to slam the door before it fully closes. So I took it in to the dealer to get it fixed. The result was some kinda beam inside broke because it was welded properly. They had to replace the beam. After I picked up my car, I noticed the door closes fine, but it's not flush against the body (i.e. a 1cm gap when the door is close). I took it in for service again. After this 2nd service, the door now shuts flushed against the body; however, the original problem came back. It doensn't "clonk", but the door doesn't shut smoothly. You have to give the door a slight "slam/push" to shut the door. I think the door or the locking mechanism is defective. Should I get this service again? Or should I complain that something's wrong with that door and they should have an expertise looking into it? Or it's me with an OCD complex?!

Thanks all!

I dont know how bad yur problem is but usually Bimmer doors need a firmer push to close .......I mean my doors dont clonk or anything but if you just leave the door with a slight push it does not have to shut a little firmer than what I have seen other cars.....though no gaps and no clonking....try some other bimmer doors at the dealership and see if they are any harder than yours.

Is it m or are the newer bimmers having more problems than the older models?????I mean I have seen so many posts with people having 04 and newer cars..........dunno...Bangle effect? ghead
