Anyone else unhappy with the cheap feeling closure of glovebox?

Is there anything that can be done to make it stiffer?

I very much agree, but it's better than the car that I test drove in March. It's glove box would barely stay closed with 88 miles on the odo. It bothered me for months.

Perhaps this is a fault? Mine seems fine. Clicks shut just fine, stays closed. Not a really beefy feel to the mechanism, but certainly not sub-par to any other typical glove boxes I've seen, except for the size. Seems the box in the MINI was only designed for a pair of gloves...
