Having changed from an Audi to a VW, I really missed the total closure feature which allows you to control the windows and sunroof using the standard keyfob...
So, I bought a neat little product call the "Alien Window Controller" from http://www.alientech.net
Took approximately 40 minutes to install, and worked first time without issues. The control is different to that of the Audi, but now I'm able to control the windows perfectly - all for $60.00 delivered!
You can rollup/down windows, perform a 1" vent or close the sunroof - all using the VW keyfob.
The only tricky bit was figuring out for the first time how to release the grab handle on the inside of the car without damaging the Aluminum finish!
Best wishes,
Ram

Update - I'm just finding out to perform an operation, you must have just closed the drivers door....
Will investigate the timeout option and post more later....

disable the time out
"Disable timeout. The 30 second rollup timeout (measured from closing the driver's door) is intended to provide a modest level of safety and to help prevent accidents. The user may now disable this timeout and allow rollups at any time. Alientech, LLC does not recommend disabling this timeout. Full responsibility for safety and proper use rest with the user. "
had mine for like a year now http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
