Window Convenience Remote Wiring?

Has anyone wired in the window convenience to shut the windows with a remote? I added a keyless entry recently, but got the unit without the window option. I'm considering adding it. I don't think the windows is something in the alarm connectors in the glove box. Where is that lead. The switch is normally activated by using the key to lock your car and holding it until the windows shut. Bentley manual didn't seem to list it under the window or lock schematics.

I just looked for the company I dealt with and they seem to have disappeared. Does anyone know if www.bmwalarm.com is around?

Or does anyone actually have the manual for installing the window option form any system?

Hamfisted is on a distinguished road
Is it an option on your car now?

You car had to come with the window convienience option from the factory to begin with. The feature in the alarm just activates it. It was a rare option.

The BMW dealer told me my car is pretty much a base model, but yes it does have window convenience. My girlfriends 96 328i also has it, but it also has heated seats and other options.

I guess I should just look at the wiring. There probably isn't a separate switch or wire. It probably uses the lock switch to trigger the action in the control module. If that's the case I just need to connect it to the lock lead on the remote. The BMW manual says it doesn't work with the remote, which is why I'm asking if anyone has done it before.
