Not very happy with Trucktec brand door carrier: beware

I've had to use a Dremel to fine tune the fire even with OE BMW parts. (Swapped my wife's OE part into my car and the door handle wouldn't drop all the way down).

Fine tune the size with a razor knife, file/Dremel. More importantly, make sure the spring doesn't poke out too far and scratch the glass.

Any time you have the part out I recommend cutting off the nub that causes most of the failures in the first place.

If you still have the original BMW part you can most likely repair it for almost free: repaired with steel wire it will be stronger than new.
