    Default Cost of converting a VXR Cultus to VXL?

    I want to know if it is EASILY POSSIBLE to convert a VXR Cultus to a VXL one meaning installing power windows and power steering in the car? When I say 'easily possible' I mean if it is something that many people have done and have had no problems of any kind afterwards.

    Also what will be the total cost of it? And can it be done from Pindi/ISB?

    As you may know, VXL model was stopped after 2007 I think and it's really hard to find an EFI VXL model in good condition. I really like Cultus but I just cannot have a car without power steering and windows. So I was thinking about purchasing a new/slightly used Cultus and installing power windows and steering in it. If it is something that I shouldn't be doing then I won't be buying it.

    Easily possible. You just need to know the good team of electrician and mechanic which can perform this task in perfect order. For spares you have to search the junk yard markets of your city with your mechanic and electrician. As they are the ones who perform these tasks daily so they will surely knows the shops related to these stuff.

    VXL stopped in 2012, After Swift DX was launched, You can easily locate parts from a used car parts market, Try looking for a EPS Electronic power steering) rather then HPS (hydraulic power steering) inner boards, Power window motors/keinchiyan etc everything should be bolt on fit without any alterations, maybe youll have to get the wiring done.

    Pakistani Cultus orignaly came with HPS but it puts load on your engine, If you can source a EPS that would be great as its more smoother and has no load on the engine.
    Get over the fact that Xli lacks power windows, Its an Xli because it lacks thoose features or else it would be a Gli or an Altis if had all the goodies.

    First priority would definitely be VXLi. But I have been looking at used car ads and I could only see VXLs of old models. Would be great if I could find a 09/10 good condition VXLi.
