Hm, yes I was only referring to the location, I am the driver and would like to control all windows from 1 location or at least closeby, here for the other 2 windows I have to go over the shift knob... I see the 5s have it that way, I will check, but that is no reason to change cars.
: : Well I assumed the motor isn't right below the switch! if it is what you say makes sense unless there is a way to disassociate the motor and the switch... in that case leave the motor where it is and move the switch.
: i am getting the impression you and the orignal post are asking 2 different things...the original post was asking if you can replace the rear wondow switches to get the auto up/down...it sounds like you don't like the location of the switches (personally i think the location of window controls make so much sense, i dunno why BMW moved them on the 5er)
