Any way to get auto-presenting doors to open a bit wider?

Title says it all. Have a very late 2016 P100D MX with auto presenting doors. They work, but after a recent service visit with MX loaner, I realized my doors don't open nearly as far as this other MX did. Any thoughts as to what could cause this or how it can be remedied? It's one of those minor annoyances I'm not even sure the dealer would address.

I've noticed this myself as well. I've had to grab the side of the door next to the window to pull the door open and sometimes it is fighting with me to open. Haha. Let me in car, I wanna go for a drive.

This may be related to the ultrasonic sensors that's in the Falcon Wing doors itself that is sensing an obstruction there, and not opening the door properly? I would guess that's why it doesn't want to open as wide.
