Default GXP Body panels faling off

Anyone with a GXP having problems with the molding?. Mine is held on by double sided tape and has come loose again. The dealer has allready fixed it once.

Ya its true. The front of my drivers side panel came loose where it starts on front fender and when I went in for an oil change, I asked if they could put back in place.
They told me it happends frequently and I had to call and make an appointment to leave car at the body shop section for a day and they will remove the whole panel and reattach with better stronger tape, so they stuck a new piece of tape on and its in place but sticks out, pisses me off every time I see it thinking "what it gonna look like when thy pry the whole dam panel off". I losing faith in the local Mr. goodwrench and dont want a local shop touching the car. Thinking I outta start taking car to Caddy dealership in a bigger city

I've been thinking just to wait till I get the metalflake clear gloss coats on, (latests idea, not sure but I am going to make "mine") then have that guy put them back on with urethane/cyanic adhesive. If it'* works for the shuttle tiles it should work on body panels.

When brought my car to the dealer they made it sound as if it was a rare or unheard of problem for the panels to come loose.
