ghead Ok, at least I am not alone. I own a 1999 323i and I am on my third window problem. Although my car seem to break only the rear window regulators. I called BMW today (customer relations and asked if they have heard of this being a problem with the E46 line since this is a repeat problem with my car. They told me that BMW does not have any knowledge of this being a problem so I am stuck with the bill this time.
I think its time for us to join forces and let them know what it is a problem. Everybody seems to know about it except BMW of North America. I know it, my technician at the dealership knows it and the engineer who is responsible on it does not? Give me a break.
If you have some input other than call customer support again on how to make BMW aware of this issue, please feel free to contact me.
