DIY Open garage from steering wheel & BMW key

So we don't have home-link units here in Australia because we use different frequencies. I thought there's got to be a simpler way, what about those spare buttons on the steering wheel like R/T and Phone?

Step 1: Take apart your spare garage remote

Step 2: Build your own iBUS relay board - that's the hard part

Step 3: Installed in the boot & working I didn't touch anything inside the cabin.

Hmmm now what else could I control with my other two relays?
