    I've got a 1996 316 with a preditor(?) alarm and that closes the windows and sunroof, it came on the car when i bought is so can't help with wiring but it can definately be done.

    What you've done has just shown you don't need a window module. Get miguel back on the job. Its one wire in total to connect with a relay to invert polarity and a few tunrs off the key to set the fob up. Simple but he'll charge you for it.

    Or any auto electrician should be able to do it if they have the wiring diagram for the toad alarm (which isn't available on the interent )

    I'm not 100% sure that all e36's had this feature but a quick way to check is by getting in the car and rolling a window up whilst in ignition and try stop it by putting your hand in the way (apply abit of downward pressure) and see if it stops or goes down a bit. If it does you've got the feature and probably just got a duff microswitch in the locking mechanism i'm guessing
