Update on Top not going up

Here's the latest update on the top issue. Finally took it down to the local BMW dealer to investigate. They say their diagnostics indicate a short somewhere in the electrical harness for the top. OK, sounds reasonable, and could provide the answer to my confusion on why it stops where it does and then starts working again after moving down a bit. The harness is around $65 and will take a few hours for them to replace (that's where the big expense comes in, of course) but I'm pretty much tired of messing with it at this point. The car has been otherwise absolutely trouble-free for the the three years I have owned it so I certainly don't mind spending some cash on it for this, provided it is the cure.

I will report back on how the fix goes.

Happy 2007 Z4 3.0Si owner.
