Question Power Windows for WagonR

HI I own a wagonR LX 2004.I regret my decision of not buying a Top end version with all the goody features. I am looking to give my wagonr a new set of power windows in the front.My question is what harm will it cost to the engine and can i go for an aftermarket lit ince they are much cheaper.Please advise.

Bro! I dont quiet understand what you mean by harming the engine! Power windows will eat a bit of the battery. That's all. It wont really harm your engine.
Maruti sells nippon as OE. You can get the same outside too. I've got Autocop power windows. It can be connected to the security system and will close by itself when you lock the car.
Get one!
But check if it voids your car warranty.

I think you made a good decision, to go for Lx if you had Power windows in mind.

Wagon R comes with front only PW, and the rear ones get left out, and it is near impossible to fit the read PWs with the control to the the drivers seat. That was the main reason to cancel my wagor R booking.

It is possible to fit PWs for all for windows, go get it, cost about 10K~ and yes they can be hooked to the auto cop, which is a added convenience

Power windows use power from battery so technically it will reduce the life of your battery. by how much...My guess wld be say a month or so...But then any battery if taken proper care would last for 3 yrs atleast. Do you not fit the music system in your car or you worry that it wld drain ur battery?....stop thinking so much abt your battery. look at the convenience part of power windows. And if they wld have taken a big toll on battery then it wld not be standard on may cars. Go for the 4 dr power windows ...U wont regret the decision :-)

C'mon man!
That Engine can move a car weighing nearly a ton. Why worry of moving a few grams of glass? It wont effect your engine. Neither your battery by much. Get an autocop 4 door PW fully automatic. Costs around 12k. 2door model costs 6k.

No, you are wrong. Note the location of CrAzY dRiVeR. He is from Trivandrum, not New Delhi. So CP in question is not connaught place.

@CrAzY dRiVeR
I guess car park is better than car palace
