BMW admits window scratching issue

Gill722010-08-18 13:25:03 +0000 #1
I have seen a few threads concerning the window sweeps in the door scratching our windows. I am a victim (same as others) having their window tint ruined by rolling down the windows.

Anyway, while at the dealer (in Belgium) this morning about this very issue, I was told that BMW is fully aware of the situation and is coming up with a recall/fix for it and that I am to return in a month or so to check on the status. He told me, once BMW tells them how to deal it I could bring my car in and they would fix all four doors.

We shall see how long it takes, but at least he freely admitted this is a known problem and BMW has stated that a fix is in the works.

Just thought I would pass it along.

i have a coupe and it only does it on the passenger window. iuno if there scratches or not didnt really looked into it. just clean it because it smeres. iuno how to spell that word. but you'll get it.

I don't see how BMW has a problem because it scrapes an aftermarket tint. If it were scraping OEM glass it would be a problem??

some dealers sell tint as an option

I had window tint installed on w/ the dealer when I bought my CPO 325i and I have no window scratching....would this be a problem with later model e9x's?
