Exclamation Howdy - advice on keeping Mimi the Z4 working

Now that she is getting up in years. I need some advice on keeping Mimi the Z4 working. Her top has already stopped going down and I learned here what causes that. It's good to have support with other owners going through the same experiences.

Welcome from a relative new-comer myself. I guess a little history would be in order; how many miles, any other problems, what do you want, etc.

I love the color of your Zed by the way!
