bmw z4 roof motor noisy?

hi people im new to this website,so thought id give it ago at posting a thread....

basicly i bought a bmw z4 2004 model a couple weeks ago with a faulty roof motor, ive worked on it all day and finally got it all in and working.

what i was wondering is are they normaly quite loud the motors? because it seems to be working fine but i can kinda hear the motor buzzing when the roof is opening and closing? i thought they were ment to be silent.... so i dunno if its me being paranoid because ive fitted it, or if they all do make a noise.

any help would be much appreciated

thanks alot carl

I have an '08 and the motor is far from being silent. It will make a whining/buzzing sound opening and closing. Keep your finger on the button until the red light goes off.

Noisy Top Motor

I have an 05 Z4 and the top motor is relatively loud but the important thing is that the top moves freely and should open close in less than 15 seconds or so.
