hey everybody! i'm new to the forum and to bmw anyway i just purchased a new 2004 325i and i love almost everything about it. however, there are 2 things that i'm annoyed with. firstly, the rear doors take a lot of force to close. when other people are with me and they get out of the car and try to close the door they usually dont close all the way and i have to tell them to use more force. is this normal with the model car that i have? secondly, the trunk lock does not seem to be very responsive to keyless entry. often times i have to press the open trunk button 3-4 times and press it down pretty hard to get the trunk to open...any thoughts?? thanks

Maybe the latches need to be adjusted...
I don't know what kind of car you had before but German cars have heavy/strong doors

I have a 2004 325xi and experience the same annoyances you do. It seems much easier to open the trunk manually than use the remote. Also, I get frustrated when I use a rental car (Grand Am) and the trunk remote works from 20+ feet away. The door --- I just have to learn to close it harder.

I also have 325i '04 (month old)...having a little problem closing the door..I think it's normal to close the door a little bit more harder. Maybe because of the tight enclosure inside the car (i think) when you close the door...try closing the door with windows a little bit open... you'll find out the difference...about the remote trunk open is you need to press the button for a couple of seconds then you will hear the unlock sound from your trunk. I also have a difficulty of opening the trunk from the remote key and closing the door...as time goes by and playing around the remote and closing the door I realize and found out that it's normal. It takes time though to be use to it.
Congrats for having a new car!!!
Hope that I give you some idea and for my little info of mine.
