I understand this is new.
There is a very cheap piece of plastic over where you would insert the key.
It fell off Day 2

Just me ?

Thanks

So, after not even looking at it for weeks, I also had a fiddle with the cheap plastic chrome effect thingumajig and yes, indeed, it does seem pretty easily popped out. My solution was to add a little nub of blu-tak. Hardly sticky, but I would assume it's going to be fine so long as you don't keep pulling it out and faffing with it. (missus!)

I think you're the first one on the forum to mention it - so so far at least they're not falling out whilst people are driving.

If you mean the chromed plastic cap on the door handle its a common fau l t blu tac or teeny blob of silicon so it comes off if you need it is the way to go! Mine was due to someone thinking you pressed it to open the door,derr

One of the cars in the showroom had that piece missing. I had to replace the cheap chrome bit on my clubby's handbrake. Always something i guess to dampen the mood.

Unfortunately pretty common on the F56 and the F55... I think all the dealer demos I've seen have at least one of them missing...

Mine practically fell off in my hand. Dealer says there is a fix, but they must replace the whole handle. It is on order, I will report back when they have fixed it.

The fix took a half day, and it seems to be as expected now. Has not fallen off!
