I have a 1997 Z3 Roadster. On the way home, a couple of guys asked if they could use my car in a TV show. When we went to their studio, the only way they said they would be able to get it on their set is to retract the windows. My question is simple: Is there a way to do this? I did not want to start forcing the mirrors back for fear of breaking them.

Re: Retracting mirrors on 1997 Z3 Roadster
To move them, remove the trim on the inside, and remove the 3 nuts that hold the mirrors on.
You said the key word....force. They are not designed to fold in.
And at $250.00 (at least) each (that's unpainted) I don't think you want to replace them unless you have to.

This actually happened to me in my '91 taurus SHO. As they towed it off, the driver looked under the car, and noticed the gearshift linkage had slipped off. He reconnected it right there (no tools required other than we had the front of the car lifted off of the ground) and I drove home.
