Aside from asking EVERY SINGLE PERSON EVERY SINGLE TIME not to slam the door, anyone have any thought as to HOW to absorb the impact of the door closing? I know it's a tough question!

BMW has a soft close door feature but it is integrated into the latch. I wonder if a small gas shock/dampener could be used? Like a small hood strut??

Yeah...you go ahead and do that when you have a screaming 6 month old 90% of the time. That's good when your courting or it's just the two of you. Add kids to the mix, and you just want the f*** out of the car.

I think I'll skip the screaming baby.

Thankfully I only had to ask the gf once to not shut it with the glass.

There's a reason I bought a car with an unusable back seat. She's the only one that can ride with me!

Lol...well I traded my 05 Explorer for the mustang.....then shorty down the line. We're pregnant! Doh!!! I would've kept the Ex if I knew this was going to happen. But she won't let my trade the stang in. And only my son rides in the back seat.

My wife was terrible at slamming my door shut, one day I told her, every time you slam the door shut, you can take the subway home from work....she thought I was bluffing, but I followed through, that sure brought instant correction!
"there's a reaction to your action"...funny how fast people can change behaviour!
Let me know how much she gets in the divorce settlement.

Slamming the door shut doesn't bother me as much as people winging the door open and bouncing it against the open stops.

I think my biggest peeve with it is people using the window to shut the door.

Thankfully the majority of my friends are car people as well and respect the car.

She understands it's MY ride, she also understands I'm not asking too much when I ask please don't slam the door...she realises she has options too, like take the freaking subway home unless you stop slamming the door, in my case it worked.
I'm not asking for something that's over the top here, have the decency and respect my wishes....
If such a request will lead to a divorce, so be it...plenty of women out there bro.
