  1. 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...

    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
  3. 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...
  4. 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 :)
  5. 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...
  6. 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 :)
  7. 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.
  8. 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...

  10. 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...

  12. 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
  13. 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...
  14. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Hi I'm having some problems with my bmw E93 the boot lid doesn't close properly it sort of acts like Its struggling to shut but some times it will **** then few seconds later it will carry on doing the same thing which is interfering with the roof?? Also the roof button sometimes flashes red...
  15. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    Hi all, Have a bit of a silly question that should be pretty obvious too me but i can't help but ask. My headliner in my 01 318i is sagging. Not bad but enough too annoy me. So i want too replace it There is one for sale online pretty local and cheap. Great condition and he's only wanting $35...
  16. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    Hi, I have this uncomfortable unacceptable issue that the soft top spontaneously opens (just unlocks and windows open) when I parked. Once it was raining and inside got wet, and one time I came back from vacation and windows open and soft top unlocked (I don;t know how long soft top and windows...
  17. E90/E92/E93 M3 (2008 - 2014)
    The roof on the M3 goes up and down but does not latch closed at the front on either side. No warning lights or messages. I have greased everything and checked fuse number 25. Any ideas?
  18. E85 / E86 Z4 (2003-2008)
    Hi, I bough this car 1 week ago and the roof was working perfectly, only yesterday I went to put the roof down and nothing happens. The light flashes orange but the windows dont go down / the roof doesn't unclip, absolutely nothing happens Have checked the shelf in the boot and that is down...
  19. E63 / E64 6 Series (2004 - 2010)
    Hi, Roof problem..... again. NO 'not locked warning' just no movement from the roof latches, windows half lower and that is all. Does anyone know how/if the roof can be manually lowered? Many thanks,
  20. F10 / F11 (2011 - 2016)
    Hi all, just got my car back from the dealership (and proceeded to immediately run out of gas, but that's a whole different story - apparently it's my fault that they used all of my gas up while repairing the car) after having some hail damage repaired, and I immediately noticed that my sunroof...
