Glad you fixed your top!
Unfortunately, my problem was that the top motor in the windshield area had a broken gear and both automatic clamping devices that secure the top down were cracked. But $1800.00 later it is working well (that sucks). What a terrible design by bmw to make the clamping devices out of plastic that breaks down. The clamps were made from a different material in 2005 because of all the complaints. Good luck!!
