Exclamation Closing doors

I have a 2003 Touring 350z. This is my first time owning a car with windows that are frame-less (like most coupes). When i have my windows all the way down for both driver and passenger side and close them, the doors close with a loud thump. I would expect the doors to close this loudly on a classic muscle car, but for a car that came out in 2003, thats kinda concerning. When the windows are all the way up, it is way less noticeable.

I don't think changing the seal would do anything because i think the noise and vibration is coming from the door when its being closed. idk...

Yes it could be that the window glass is loose from its track, which holds it, and keeps it from vibrating. You could also check that your door latch is lined up correctly. The door should be able to latch/ close with minimal force.

Also, make sure your windows are moving slightly down when opening the door, when they are all the way up. And back up, when you close the door. If not, this could be a window motor issue.
