How do you mean by auto... on the button?
Have you been holding your finger on the button until the window is fully up or down?

Good here, been very busy with work today so not much time for any fun today. My boss just offered to pay for flights to Washington to visit his office and have a 'talk' with my team over there... I think I see a free holiday on the way!

Going to pick up my new Adjuster Screw from BMW tomorrow.... Finally I will be back on the road!!

Me too... it wasn't over heating until that screw started leaking, so fingers crossed. Going down to dealers at about 10am.

Put the screw in... still leaks but not as bad as before. The leak seems to die down when she's warmed up.

I let her warm up for a while then took her for a spin, about 4 miles. The fan kicked in as it is supposed to and there was no overheating.

Going to let her cool down for a while and check the water level and top it off then bring her down the motorway. .. lets hope i don't get stuck on the side of the road lol.
