will loosen up over the first few months, if you drop the top often. Mine were ultra-stiff at first, but are a breeze now (8 months later). Enjoy!
: On Saturday, we picked up our 1999 2.8 triple black, auto
: trans (wife's requirement), 17 inch wheels, premium package, chrome, cd. We got a great lease deal on the car
: as it seems the dealers really want to move out the 1999s.
: Anyway, we love the car, but have the following questions.
: 1. On the way home, I noticed the car does not have a
: center armrest. In the BMW brochure, it clearly shows one.
: Is this an option that I forgot, or did the dealer forget to install it? Surprisingly, the car did come with floormats. 2. We need a windscreen. I know there are several to choose from, but which is best? Is there a part #? How much? Best place to purchase it? 3. The driver side lever for the convertible top takes a lot of effort to open and close, in fact my wife can not do it. Is there an adjustment? 4. The BMW "business cd radio" is poor. Any reasonably priced improvements, not looking for a concert hall, just decent sound. 5. In the 100 miles I put on the car, there is a lot of brake dust on the wheels, any products to deal with this?. 6. the seat belt really is really tight on the shoulder, is this normal. Sorry for all of the questions, we really like the car. Our last sports car before this was
: a 1982 corvette. What a difference. Thanks
