You should keep the rear headrests down. The right one looks like its sitting higher than the left.
Very well done. Im loving the CSL bumper with the 1 piece lip.
Don't laugh at me but I had no idea they were even adjustable. How do I bring them down!!! I would love them lower

Dont feel bad. After 5 years I didnt know they were adjustable either. If you check at the bottom of the headrest you'll see a button about an inch wide. If you press it in you can lower or raise the headrest. Just hold it in and push down.

If you need help drop me a PM

Hi everyone, I'm new to the vert sub forum. Maybe this has been asked before ... but is there a control module for the e46 that allows you to drop the top while driving?

No.

You don't want to do that.

It will break it. Use your head.

I think EAS sells one. But Why would you do that? You will tear your top to pieces. If you had a vert hard top maybe I could see it. But cloth top=bad idea.

This is for convenience to draw the top up when it starts to rain. Instead of pulling over to do it, slow down to the acceptable speed to put up the top.

Checked out your tip re EAS, they have it for the 6 series (e64) - Smartop module, none for e46. But thanks!

just pull over. it is far too fragile and will cost $$$$ to fix , for the sake of a few extra sec's to come to a stop !
