    In pakistan people have some much extra time, and for to save few thousands they buy after market products and covert there manual windows to electronic one...
    and most of people buy xli as its hot market product and quickly sell in the market..

    depends on the people some realise later that they should have bought a GLi instead of XLi ............. then they convert to GLi.... i have seen people coverting GLi to altis also but the engine is the same 1.3 but they have sideskirts,alloys, and some even have altis badge on the back

    They convert it for their ease and they also pretend as they own a GLI.

    Its not the same thing... most xlis converted with power windows have lazy windows after some time.... factory fitted electronics cannot be compared to aftermarket, specially power windows or mirrors..

    The reason why people do this is to save money... I fail to understand the point...

    Only those convert their XLI,s to GLI,s who are least concerned about the Quality..
    POWER WINDOWS:
    The aftermarket powerwindows for corolla suck big time. The windows are too slow even to come downwards. 2ndly while going upwards its becomes dead slow after just few months, and mostly u have to pull it with you hand as well alongwith the button pressed. Then the motor produces loud sound and sometimes the "Garari" misses and produces Tak Tak Tak Tak sound while trying to lift the window upwards..
    How can some1 who is quality concious go for such Powerwindows..
    CENTRAL LOCKING:
    The aftermarket desi central locking motors are a big heck as well. They stop working anytime they want. To be safe you have to manually check all the doors after locking, in case any of the motor has stopped working.. Secondly they also make a loud sound while locking and unlocking, whereas the genuine central locking motors create a very minor sound.
    Above two conclusions are made as per my close relative who , has done this conversion from XLI to GLI twice and faced the same issues both times.. But still he is happy. Lolz.

    Waste of money to buy an XLI - trying to 'convert' it is even more of a waste. Just makes people feel better I guess. Indus is the only company that can get away with selling a car for 14 lakhs plus and not even add a basic option like power windows.
