    Has the car been in an accident or the door itself got any damage to the channel that the window glass slides up and down in? Try lubricating the window channels with aerosol spray silicon available at a car parts store or hardware store. It will lessen friction between the glass and channel but I would closely inspect the internal workings of the door.
    Hot Springs National Park sounds wonderful ! I love the National and State Parks.

    I've had to replace the window mechanism on 3 of my 4 windows, and now one will need to be replaced a 2nd time. I think it's a design flaw in the 2001 328xi, to be honest.
