I don't think I noticed it before for some reason, but my car has the "bonus roll" that is common in most GM/Ford cars, when the car is in Park and the e-brake is engaged.

Am I just getting lucky or is this a common "feature?"

Not really sure what you mean. If my car is parked in neutral with the parking break fully on it's not going anywhere.

YES! that happens to me. I'll put it in park and my car will roll.....even when I put the e-break up like half way, it will still roll......it will only stop if I YANk on the e-break all the way.

How can i adjust it, does the dealership do it or is it possible to adjust it yourself any DYI?

i had the same problem, the hand brake was fully engaged incredibly high, so high that it would hit the arm rest. brought my car in for inspection 1 and to my surprise, the brake was adjusted w/o me asking. now, it's fully engaged just shy of halfway and is tight at just above half way. i have to pull as hard as i can to get it 1/4 of the way up and that's as far as i can get it.

just tell the service guys that you need them to tighten your handbrake. i have a bentley manual and i'm sure it mentions how to do it in there. beyond my car knowledge and tools however.
