Door Seal rubbing against paintwork

Post by CaptFish » Sun Jun 24, 2018 11:36 pm

Just noticed today that the top of the car door seal, just where the metal meets the b column, is scratching the paint. It's the bit close to the door handle and scratches the b column just underneath the window. I'll try to get a picture tomorrow.
It's not rubbed through, but considering that the car is only 8 months old a bit concerning.
Has anybody else had noticed this?

Yes, this is so common it made it into the M-Lite FAQ.

Yup, asap. Mine was 3M heli tape from eBay, not expensive.

It's a pain we have to correct BMW's design errors though! :evil:

Should warranty not cover this?

Prevention is better than cure, imo. Depends if you're happy with having non-factory paint sprayed everywhere I guess.

Has anybody experienced it worn through to the primer or even metal.
At the moment it's just scratches in the laquer. Not a good design as all sort of dust gathers on that seal which transforms it into sandpaper.
