I just bought my first BMW, a '90 325i. I don't have an owner's manual and I can't seem to figure out what a couple of the buttons do. There is a button to the right and one to the left, just above the shifter. What do they do? I tried them pressed in and let out, and they don't seem to do anything. Thanks for your help.

uh... i really have no idea what buttons your talking about but perhaps ill assume your talking about the window roll up and down buttons and then the window lock.

The power window buttons are below the shifter (closer to the driver), the buttons I'm talking about are above the shifter.

4-door or two?

if it's a 4-door & one of the buttons you're asking about is square, not rectangular, push it so it's popped OUT, get in the back seat & try to roll down the rear windows... bet cha they won't go down. it's a rear window lock button.

the other one, if it's rectangular, is probably the window fuse breaker... press that one so it's popped out & none of em will work

you had the car for how long? and you still don't know how to use the functions inside the car?

If you can't afford it, make it!
