Please do not forget to click a positive rating as this is the only way I receive credit for my answer, thank you

unfortunately there is no way to manually close this particular roof, BMW did not engineer one into the system.

if you need a good non dealer option to cut down on costs, check out www.bimmershops.com or www.bimrs.org for options.

Please let me know if you have further questions. Please do not forget to click a positive rating as this is the only way I receive credit for my answer, thank you. Best wishes with your vehicle...
