I like that.. I always just tap the switch when lowering and try not to stop all the way up.

Mine usually fail when it gets cold out due to the crappy factory lubrication. While I have replaced one of my regulators (3 times), the geometry of the system will never be as perfect as it once was, so I don't even chance it.

My windows barely work. They go up and down with a lot of help from me pulling on them, but one of these days they'll probably just get stuck and stay stuck. Fixing them is on my (very) long list of things to do.

As you watch the cloud of steam rising from your engine, you wish for smaller hands to change the #$%*@ plastic coolant elbow at the back of a M44...

Sigh...

Default You know you a drive a 318ti when...

Have you replaced the rubber/felt channel guides? It definitely made my window slide smoother.

I haven't replaced them. Just siliconed it back into place. Next time I take the door panel off I'll do that.
