My Ride: 323ci 2000 convert
Opening soft top via key fob-

My 2000 323Ci had this feature- i could lower it standing about 50ft from car. I often wondered if it could be coded to raise the top- without or without rain. I live in DFW area and am an avid top-down convertible owner- Never a problem with windows or top- I am certain I averaged once a day if not twice, during hot weather I would raise/lower 2,3. 4 times; bought it in '05 sold in 2010..... put 135k on her; biggest problem was coolant system... and driver seat belt re-tractor; never saw any evidence of hydraulic fluid leakage. I do have one question- Why in the world would a car that sells for over 50k new have soft rubber-like coating on the most used part of the interior- the console, not to mention around the cup holders ! Gads what are they thinking. Its the 1st thing to deteriorate in the interior. Is there a way to repair or replace that coating?
Your info would be appreciated.
