    You are not the first to have this thought....

    E36 Cabriolet Roof Conversion?

    You will need - Hood, wiring, motors, modules, linkages, microswitches, endless time and patience....and still no guarantee it will work.

    Once the electric roofs go wrong most people convert them to manual as they are to much hassle to fix.

    Andy328i has done the semi-auto to auto so you can see how much was involved in that alone...
