Comfort closing??

On my 94 318is the comfort closing feature works only the windows, has no effect on the sunroof. Everything I've seen says it's supposed to close both. The sunroof works normally from the switch. The delay works normally also when the car turned off until a door is opened. Is this normal or do I have a little problem here? used:

My car is a different model and year but still an e36. My car does not have the capability to auto close the sun roof, only the windows. BavAuto actually sells a retrofit kit that we can add to our cars to convert our sunroof to auto

Sorry guys, just looked at my BavAuto catalog and it lists the "Sunroof Express" as only fitting 3 series 96-98, for $40. You might want to call them to see what they say about shipping to you and fitting older cars 800 535 2002.

Thanks for the info. Maybe I'll look into the upgrade later. I'm still waiting for my Bavauto catolog.

Yeah, actually this express thing is not on the site, only saw it in the catalog. Just give them a call, they are very helpful
