Girls slamming the door on my M3

Now I'm a single guy and living it up but I dread the time that I take a girl out in my M3 because when they get in the car they slam the door sooooooo hard it sounds like the glass is going to shatter. When they leave the car they grab the glass to shut it and swing it shut like its some 50's Chevy truck or something. So I try to help them in and out as much as possible cause I cringe when I hear the door slam that out with it was -13 degrees F last night. Most of these girls I've been going out with are one the first or second date so I don't want to sound like a prick and tell them how to shut the door.

Do you guys have this same problem and if so what do you do/say to them?

oh I do but lets say you're both in the car. You arrive at your destination. She gets out and slams the door before you can get to that side......

Closing the door by grabbing the glass can cause window motor failure. And I'm not fond of wiping off fingerprints either. I'm very respectful of other people's property and so has been everyone who's been in my car... but if I had anyone slam the door, I sure as all hell would ask them to kindly not do it again.

Girls ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS seem to slam the door

On a side note if it is giving you that horrible sound, you might have a bad window regulator

Yeah I usually open/close doors for a date to avoid that situation but when we arrive at a destination and she gets out and closes it with the glass I just watch and cringe.

At least for the first few dates

Well I'm glad I'm not the only one who feels like this. Sometimes I try to limit the stops we make so we don't have to get in/out that much haha I'm not sexist but come on why does it seem like its only the girls that do this? I bought my car in October and I didn't buy it to get ass but I hate picking girls up in this car. I can't wait til spring so I can get my Honda CBR 600RR out and if they're scared of a rocket I'll drive their civic/cavalier : )

On a side note some fine nussie was getting out of the back seat with her effin 4" heels and stepped on the rocker panel and scratched my paint. You can't see it with the door closed but I'm starting to get to the point where I need girls to read and sign a "respect to property form".

^^ wow females are messin up your **** homie lol

I don't like to put in a lot of people in my car at one time and i don't let in dogs or people that bring in drinks or food, that really pisses me off!

As for girls, what kind of girls are you dating man? The doors on my M are pretty heavy and i stick to small chicks, sounds like your dating gladiators if they can slam your door! They can barely get mine properly closed

man, i feel you. i started a thread about something similar few years ago. i cant stand when chicks do that. The worst for me is when they really think they can eat and drink im my car. i laugh at first and if they get slick, i take whatever their eating and drinking, and throw it out the window.
