I see ad's in the back of all the auto mag's about changing to power mirrors. Never had the need to find out how much they were though. Sorry, can't find the number here!

This reminds me of another question I wanted to ask ... has anyone faced any problems with normal to power window conversions? Is it advisable? And more importantly, does the control box look out of place or do they fit those buttons into the car handles or some other area?

can be done no big deal but over time its irritating since truckers jus ram your side mirrors off and they cost u bad. i did get power windows in my ikon done. all 4 for rs. 6000. still works i guess. my advise do not do it.

Its is possible.Its advisable to goto the company and get it done rather than doing it from sum local guy.Moreover one does get a warranty fot it too.
