not impressed
if you had a front window regulator broken for several months, then that's one thing
i remember having to constantly tell my passengers to not open the window
and the time i was driving up and down from VA to NY with my driver side front window one broken ... having to stop at the toll booths and opening my door or opening the moonroof to pay

regulators take less than 45 minutes to replace. You are all so terrible.

mine stayed broken while waiting for the part to be delivered

the time i drove from VA to NY, i actually made plans to meet someone (a forum member) in NY to do the swap and bought the part at a dealership in queens
price on the window regulators have gone up so much
i remember buying the front driver side at the DEALERSHIP for $95 or so back in 2005.. now it's like $140?

I think it would be more of a big deal for me if it was summer and I would actually want to lower the windows

That's just embarrassing.

Both of the passenger side regulators in the sedan are broken from women slamming the doors. They're making that dreadful clicking noise that makes me cringe.
The passenger side regulator in the M3 is also dying a slow death.
Meanwhile, the E30 is still going strong.
