I'd follow Maarten's pointers on this. Yes; -bf- can be a predictor too. I am puzzled by your belief, repeated here, that you need new variables. You already have the data in optimal form as 0 and 1 values for logit analyses: creating different versions of the same variables will make nothing easier and -logit- impossible.
