Coupe doors

I recently bought a 2006 330ci convertible 2 door coupe.
I have found that the door handle and door are tough to menouvar.
The handle itself seems to have a double click mechanism that means it almost requires two times the pulling force.
And once the door is open to pull it further it seems to require two times as much force as my friends 320i 4 door sedan.
Possible reasons for this? Could it be the length and therefore weight of the doors in their opening then subsequent pulling or could there be an issue with the handle and hinges that could require more than just lubricant? Thanks in advance experts!

Search the site, there's an adjustment screw for that. Warning, don't just tighten that screw. Loosen, tighten, loosen, then tighten some more. You'll get what I'm saying when you find the DIYs.

Makes sense. Thank you, the adjustment screw should be relatively easy to find?
