my weather strip is getting loose on my 325 coupe. can anyone tell me if they had the same problem and what kind of glue they used to fix? or if you have can recommend to get it done, that would also be good.

Canadian tire has weather stripping adhesive.. it's yellow and that is what I used.

Every summer though, it comes undone and I have to re-glue it. I will buy new weather stripping this summer and I recommend you do the same.

It's stupidly expensive, but message maranello mike on here and you will get a discount. He will ship it for you if you wish.

The black rubber seal on the car side of the door opening? I just use the black sensor safe gasket maker. Forms a tough rubber that is resistant to most chemicals and weather. Clean the area with alcohol to remove oils, put the glue over the rip/hole and lay a bit of wax paper over it, shut door. Peel off wax paper a day later and then spray the area with silicone spray to lubricate.

Another bonus is it's black, so it blends.

Performance one step at a time.
