    @aamir. About 8 years back i have done this (2 front windows). it was a success. first of you'll have to get motors for rolla 86 or 88 which one is cheaper, from bilal gunj. then for installation call Riaz electrian 0300-4880616 at newspeed works airport road opp PSO gas station. He will be able to install it for you.
    If installed properly, there will be no problem. and the ttl cost inclusding the wiring,machines,switches and labour will be about 5000.

    Do not do that, I did that with my Cultus 2003 and it was total failure. Though it was done by the best electrian and motors were from Cultus VXL. Adjustment and proper fitting, they can not do that.

    In Charade, power windows can be installed easily without any problem. So go for it. Problem with the Cultus is that the glass is too tilt and rubbers are tight, that is why even with the handle, it seems tedious. My friend's new VXL, he went to the dealer twice to fix the power windows as they weren't shutdown properly.

    I got this done in my 86 Charade several years ago. They ran without problems for 3 years, after that I sold the car. I got the parts from an 88 model, since the 86 was not originally available with power windows. Got the whole thing done from Peshawar. They had to drill a few holes on the doors to get the cables through and to install the motors, but otherwise its not a difficult installation. You need to find an experienced shop to get it done. Inexperienced mechanics will mess it up. Don't forget to install proper fuses as well.

    I would highly recommended this upgrade.
