  1. 3 Series
    First time on here… bear with me 😂 I’ve got a 3 series convertible from 2009. Had it about a year and it’s been fine until now… Closed the roof fine and then it continued with a motor whirring noise even after if taken the keys out. I tried opening the boot to check what’s going on but it...
  2. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    So I was in the process of letting the roof down in my convertible, it started, but didn't release from the sensors, nor did the trunk start to open, the windows did the roll down, and immediately it all stopped, sensor light next for roof started blinking red. I still haven't been able to get...
  3. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    Hello, just a question to see if anyone has done this before, my e36 has a full electric roof but it’s kinda destroyed and doesn’t work but the motors do still work, I tried to fit a half electric roof onto the e36 and convert it to a full electric but I couldn’t fit the full electric roof...
  4. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    So I got this nice 330ci a couple days ago, the previous owner told me the roof doesn’t work automatically. After putting it down manually I tried to put it back up again - which was not possible, it always gets stuck in this position, the last bend won’t unfold. I tried turning the manual...
  5. F30 / F31 / F32 / F33 / F34 / F36 (2012 - current)
    I have a f33 When I go to open the hood it unlatched from the front but will not open If I push the top it will open a bit and you can hear the motor running
  6. E30 (1982 - 1993)
    Hello! E30 325i convertible 1987. When I shut my roof down with my windows up all my windows seat great. When i undo and do up my drivers window again it's going over the roof seal creating a gap that could let in at least a lego figure (theiving gits those lego figures) Looks like the window...
  7. E85 / E86 Z4 (2003-2008)
    So - how many folks have just removed the rubber grommet thing at the bottom of the drain hose and left it off? I know it's supposed to block bugs and stuff, but it seems that it causes more problems than it solves. Has anyone had a problem stemming from these things not being there? Thanks :)
  8. F30 / F31 / F32 / F33 / F34 / F36 (2012 - current)
    Could someone who understands the model advise me please? A few years back I had a 3 series convertible which I could open and close the roof on the key fob, I have purchased a 2015 420 where I CAN open the windows with the key but NOT the roof and I am UNABLE to shut the roof, or the windows...
  9. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    Hello Team, Does anybody had tried to install a tent on their E60 model? I have 2008 528i and enjoy some camping, but annoyed with the ground setup. Do you think it is possible or nice looking :) Adding a photo I was able to find online, looks not bad at all :)
  10. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    Does anyone happen to have an OEM roof rack for an E39 sedan for sale? (Or at least one that bolts to the factory holes) I just bought a 2002 540i and would like to have a roof mounted bike rack. Thanks.
  11. E63 / E64 6 Series (2004 - 2010)
    I know this is a frequent & variety of problems. There have been various postings which take some tracing. I have had the strut 'Bosman' fix and have since replaced the sensor to great effect. Yesterday I had another problem. My roof stopped while closing with the front roof up, wings up, rear...

  13. E85 / E86 Z4 (2003-2008)
    Hey guys, I have a 2004 Z4. The roof stuggles to open and close. To the point now it works good in the beginning of the season and stops after a month or two all together. This year it won't budge. Latches work fine, and motor is whirring strong. I think it's a hydraulic fluid issue, but...

  15. X3 G01 (2018 - current)
    I'm looking to buy a roof support system for my X3 M40i. I got a quote from BMW and it's obviously expensive but does anyone have any recommendations on other roof systems that are compatible with the new X3? I looked at Sportrack and Thule, but I'm not sure on the compatibility of things. Thanks
  16. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Hi all, My first post as an E93 convertible owner, and a desperate plea for help! I should preface this by saying that my car is an M3 technically, but I suspect there are more 3-series convertible owners so I've posted here for (hopefully) greater exposure. So, after 3 years of trouble-free...
