Hi

My BMW 1 Series (Automatic, SE, 06 Reg) which was purchased on Wednesday appears to have a small issue with the handbrake. If my car is in neutral on an incline/decline it will roll without friction when pulling the handbrake 4 clicks. 5+ clicks and the car will remain stable. Placing the car in park doesn't cause a problem.

Does my handbrake need adjusting or should I report this to the dealer and get them to inspect the car. 5 clicks to keep the car stable doesn't seem much by my partner can't manage 5 clicks without using 2 hands.

Thanks
Jamie
