It certainly can be. It is better to post a question on the general forum rather than a sticky dedicated to common medhcanical problems.

In regards to your questions, there are a lot of things that it could be. The electrical systems on these cars can be a bear when they reach the age of our E34's. Reverse lights not working is usually a problem with the wiring in the loom running along the left trunk hinge. Expose the wires and take a look for any that are frayed or worn through. The rear windows not rolling down could be a fuse, switch, window motors, regulators, etc. We have to have more information as to what happens when you press the switch. You may need a new instrument panel or there may be a bad connection or one of your fuseable links may be bad etc., etc.

Don't take Wis's comment too personal. We just need more info to help. It may be good to address each problem one at a time.

Oh, and yeah, you need to grow just a little thicker skin. Most of the guys around here are really great to chat with for ideas.

Welcome. I hope I have helped a little. Try posting a question about one problem on the E34 forum (note the sticky thread) and see what kind of responses you get.

Most problems are usually something simple !
