Deja Vu

BMW part number:  51 33 8 252 393, take 3

My car just ate yet another front window regulator (part #51338252393 and #51338252394), which brings the total number of them replaced to four. That is, given the fact that windows in my car are rarely opened at all. Wonder how many window regulators normal people have gone through.

Every time the root cause is the same: same shitty plastic part (see the photo above) shattering. Sounds like a design defect to me, wonder what BMW is going to do about it.
