E36 Electrics

So I've just got my '94 E36 320i se and love it already.

However, I have noticed that all the electrics seem to be a little on the slow side. Never having had electric anything before was wondering if this is normal?

When the drivers side window gets about 2-3" from the top going up or down it shudders (but i think this is more to do with dirty window seals).

The sunroof is painfully slow, like a toy that you turn on and then realise that the batteries are about to die. The small amount of friction generated by the roof lining seems to kill it.

Even the central locking seems a bit on the slow side, although it works, so im not really bothered about the speed of that.

I have also noticed that the windows/sunroof dont seem to be automatic, one of the rear windows did it once but i havent been able to work out if it was because it was meant to or because the button got stuck. :P

Anyway, wall over, if anyone has any tips/advice leave a post, thanks!
