    Please tell me I'm not the only person with a problem concerning retraction of windows after closing the hardtop. My original '08 had the same problem, windows would not raise completely at the end of "close top cycle" one or the other of the front windows would drop, as though an impedance hampered the ability to fully close. I.E. childs arm in window, automatically stops and drops the window. Lauderdale Imports tried on over 18 occasions spanning 50+ days to correct the problem. Finally they through in the towel and ordered me a new vehicle (see posts from June/July 08) saying they could not fix the problem. Cudos to Lauderdale Imports for stepping up. BUT, my brand new replacement 335 has the exact same problem and it seems to be occuring more frequently as time goes on. At least 75% of the time, when I close the top, one or the other front windows will stop half way and drop. Also occurs when activating the "all windows up" switch. It is very annoying and in one instance, the valet did not notice the window had not fully closed until he retrieved my car after dinner.

    I cannot believe my luck is that bad, have others dealt with this seemingly unsolvable problem. B.T.W. my service advisor has hinted that the problem is more widespread than I thought. Anybody have advice or comments. I could use the imput.

    Thanks for reading,
