2009 BMW M3: Subtle Details Losing Subtelty

June 16, 2009

Ed mentioned the subtle details of the M3 door sill in a recent post. I noticed the same when my shoe caught the neighboring trim piece and flung it from the car yesterday. Its marred underside gave the impression I wasn't the first down this path. The trim piece snapped back into place with minimal effort. But it reminded me of a related problem with our long-term Z.

Is this a new trend in build quality or are we just clumsy? There must be similar stories out there. Do you have one? Let's hear it.
