    Hi I have a 1 series convertible. Had it for 10 years from new. The Windows sticks solid when iced up in cold weather. This should not be an issue other than you can't open the window until the car warms up inside. On my car if you attempt to open the window the motor keeps trying to open the...

    I blew the dust off my 735i this morning and drove it to the railway station. I'd forgotten how heavy the steering is. It's got the usual small leak under the resevoir but otherwise seems ok. Does anybody know how to test the servotronic to test if that is causing it to be in continuous heavy...
