    hi all, ive just bought my new car (328 convertible)
    but have an issue with the roof,
    it opens up at the fron and back but for some reason the cover (behind the rear seats) wont open to let the roof fold away
    when i put it away manually and the do the initialisation procedure it works fine to close the roof but then wont open up again,so the motor etc.. works fine
    the bloke i bought it from said that they disabled it some how and it needs re syncronising using a computer, is this ture or is there something i can do to make it work ?

    cheers for any help

    Dave

    Any help to you? http://www.pelicanparts.com/bmw/tech...onvertible.htm

    IIRC the motor does have to be synchronised
