You can only use the remote buttons to open the windows & sunroof, you can't close them with it. Instead, you have to put the key in the door and hold it in the locked position. Hold it until it/they close, let go, and pull the key out.
No, No, o.... your car is an E90 if it is a 2008 sedan, and an E92 if it is an 2008 coupe.
(: E36 is teh chassis for 3 series from 1992 to 1998; E46 for 1999 to 2005; E90/E91/E92 from 2006)
I found out by looking aournd the web that owners of new 3 Series are all facing the same thing as you regarding the windows/sunroof. I think BMW messed up. Anyhow, you should still be able to do it from outside, as follows:
"The sunroof will open with the fob. To close it you have to put the key into the lock turn all the way to the right and hold it and then mirrors will fold, windows will come up, and sunroof will close."
Do you have comfort access? If so, I hear you can just hold on to the handle from teh outside until everything closes back up.
