        can this do 2 windows with one switch? i asked george if his kit can and he said no. just looking for a cleaner look on my vert and delete two switches, plus not to mention 150x4 is kind of a rip off imo.

          I didn't say it couldn't be done, I said I wouldn't do it because I 100% believe you wouldn't like it. :) Maybe that's what you meant.

          If you really want a "clean look" and only 2 switches, maybe consider hiding the rear switches in the ash tray? Hope that helps.

                You could do two windows with one switch, but you're going to need two modules, and you need to modify both modules.

                  New custom circuit board - my own design, fully rebuilt switch. New LED, resistor.



                  Ah yes, that looks nice:

                  Are you selling these? I'd like the simplest and most elegant one touch install possible.

                      Can this be done with e38/e39 switches? I rather the look of these switches and someone hacked them for use in e30's before but not for one touch, they fit nicely with a little bit of filing. If anyone knows how please let me know. If not I kind of think I may be able to rap my head around this guide and add the module onto it. Resource: https://www.bimmerforums.com/forum/s...One-Switch-Mod

                        Short answer is no.

                        Long answer is yes, but not without modifying the switches, and enough wires that would look like a bowl of spaghetti connected to 4 relays (4 for each window, 8 relays for a 2 door, 16 for a 4-door! Yikes!) - the number of connections needed would be maddening. It would take the better part of the day just to mock up - assuming you knew what you were doing.

                        The next question people ask is "can I steal a module out of a e36/e38/e39 and use that? No. After the e36 BMW added some electronics into the motors that that make in not work with the e30 wiring and motors.
