I don't think it works that way. Checking my '03's owners manual, there's
no provision for this on the lock button, only the convenience opening mode
on button #1. It's possible the UK car is set up differently than the US
(where we're all prisoners to the whims of litigators).

You're possibly right about there being a difference with US cars.
I know it should work this way in the UK.
I have two E39's. Both 528i's, and both Owners Handbooks confirm that the
windows should be able to be opened or closed, using buttons 1 and 2.
Ditto with mine - I had a 97 523i and that worked correctly - holding
the button for a an extra couple of seconds would result in the windows
closing. Be interested to know why (it appears) this function doesn't
work on the later car (01 530i).
