My car, the Netherlands:
using the key in the keyhole: anti-clockwise... hold 3 secs, windows roll down. clockwise more than 3 sec, windows close.
Then using remote, "open" button more than 3 sec = windows open, "close"for more than 3 secs, windows close.

Granted I thought the same thing that my US spec couldn't close the windows, I asked the guy there if he could somehow put in the german module. He said that no BMWS can close their windows with the key as it is a safety feature. I said yea in the U.S its a safety concern and he replied no even here in Germany. I then later learned about the TUV and all the other inspections german cars must go through and now I understand why even Euro spec BMW's don't have this option.

Believe me, it is true. It works on my car. The only thing that does not work is closing the rear coupe windows with the remote. The reason is that the rear coupe windows have no sensor to recognize if an object gets stuck between the window and the frame.

works on mine too, and as far as i can remember i didn't have to get anything activated.. worked on my last E46 coupe too the current one is a 2001.

As someone said it opens all windows and the sunroof, but doesn't close the back windows due to safety.

because even in germany, most dealers don't know jack about our cars, they are there to just sell them. my dealer in germany sold BMW's, Mini's, and Volvo's, but he drove a MB. ...and i knew more about my BMW and it's options than he did. most of them aren't "Fanatics" like us...
