Bimmerd00d, it's your car do what you want. If I were in your shoes I would have to think of some other alternative as well, $430 for regs is certainly not something I have money for. Hope everything works out alright.
I love the guys that think BMW's are the most expensive cars to maintain. If it's not a window regulator on my E39, it would be the transmission on my g/f's Cavalier, or maybe the fuel pump (VP44) on our Dodge Ram diesel. I figure the E39 has a goofy issue here and there, but rarely is the car undriveable because of it. It's not like i CANT afford the regulators, i can't justify the bill for them. So $430 that i'd spend on rear window regulators for something i barely use is unjustifiable. I'll gladly get a few shocks or maybe some control arms that keep my 540 driving like a charm.
