Had car for a week and noticed roof top is off??

Took order last tuessday on e92 and noticed today that the drivers side corner of the carbon fibre roof top is not down like all 3 other corners. Should i be worried since it rained over here couple times during the week not sure if damage could have been caused? I have no clue so any advice would be nice as i doubt the dealership will tell me if damage was caused from this as this is how it came when i took delivery.

You referring to the rubber seal where it meets the windshield? Mine stick up in the air, and I've wondered about water myself, but no matter how many times I push down on it, it doesn't seem to seat itself and lay down. I've debated putting a little betalink under it, seeing if that'll hold it down, cause it's annoying.

first 2 pics are the dirvers corner that is out and last 2 are passengers side which is in all the way. Drivers corner is kind of hard to see in the pics but in real life you can look in between the whole and see the inside of the carbon fibre i believe.

Yup, mine is exact same way. Passenger side is seated all the way down and the drivers side is poking up. Poor craftsmanship
Ive washed mine a bunch of times, never had any water leak. Seems like its mostly just an eyesore.

Mine has the same problem on one corner. Don't think it does any damage, but i might take it to the dealer for them to stick it back where it should be.

Calm down, thats not your roof. Its the side rails which sit in with clips. Either a clip is broken or just popped out.

hit it into place using your fist but not super hard. start from the middle of the roof, hitting the railing into place all the way to the front. If that doesnt work, just take it in and have them replace the clips.

On Jerez? You'd get over it in about a week, then you'd be on here complaining how you wish you had a moon roof!

BMW's craftsmanship as of late is f-ing pathetic.
