I think even that is not going to work. The motor would need some extra output, the square wave "travel" signal, so you'd need a window regulator that provides that. Then you have to wire that all the way back to the driver's switch.

Totally worth it to wire in the aftermarket modules, I use the auto up/down all the time. I even have the DEIs wired to the battery, so I can "request" all the windows to roll up, turn off the car and exit, don't have to wait for them to finish closing.

I know there are those "blah blah lazy blah blah" proponents out there, but for me this saves so much time rolling the windows up and down, I never could contort my hand in just the right way to pull on all 4 switches at the same time.

BTW the Forester and STI have fully lighted window switches in the driver's door, and the passenger's door. For 08-10 it is a direct swap in the driver's door and a little work in the other doors. '11 should be the same provided you use a driver's switch from an '11 STI or Forester with the auto up/down
