Have any one ever had there rubber seal around the doors rip or tear, I have had that happen to my 06 GS, and I'm not sure if this is a freak accident or something that happens frequently?

If the coupe windows work like the spyder, the window lowers slightly when you pull on the door handle to open the door. I have noticed on my spyder that if you try to simultaneously open the door while pulling on the handle that it feels sort of 'stuck' until the window does it automatic lowering thing.
Then when you close the door, the window automatically raises slightly to fit into the rubber channel.
I think that if you do the immediate pull (or push from the inside) to open the door that the window pulls on the rubber channel, and if you do this often enough it tears the rubber. I know that mine has a minor tear that I attribute to this.
