BMW Switch mod

My E36 BMW had 4 electric windows and a electric sunroof.
The electric sunroof switch was in the roof. each window switch was in the centre console, with 1 kill switch for the rear windows.
After some thought, I decided to move the window switch down to the location of the rear window kill switch and remove this.
Once this was done I had the idea of adding a 6th button which could do two things.
Up would start the car and down would open the boot.

This was achieved by cutting up a old window switch and separating the two half's so each one was its own switch.

You can just make out what I done to this switch.

With all the cables ran the correct way and the switch tested, I fitted all switches back in to the centre console.
Yes, the LED lights worked as well.
