Handbrake ajustment

I would appreciate if somebody could tell me how to ajust the handbrake, could do it myself but a guy I know told me it was not an easy process. well, since it's my first bmw, I didn't want to take any chances to try to fix it not to mess it up more.

It is really easy. I did it on my E36 a couple of times. Just follow the DIY in the link above.

Have you been able to do it?? An adjustment really is easy, even though a dealership or mechanic would make you fork over $50 or $60 for it.
