    BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E21
    Hello I've posted a short 24-second 9Mb low resolution video clip of the non-operable roof on YouTube. I first try putting the roof down, but the front lip above the windscreen now barely moves at all. I then press to close the roof, but it seemingly doesn't close properly as the LED still...
