Erm, what? My 1994 (L) Corsa GSi doesn't have electric windows

Any info on this? What donor cars do I need to be looking for in order to upgrade mine to have electric windows?

Cheers

Not all GSIs have electric windows. Was an optional extra from new.

You can fit them though.

you will have the correct wiring in the loom, so just look for any 3 door donor (GLS, SRi, Sport, another GSi)

Thanks guys! I was worried for a bit that my "GSi" was a clevery kitted "Club" with a C16XE transplant or something

Colin J, funny thing is I'd been in it about 3 times before I bought it, but after I'd bought it, literally 5 seconds into the first drive I went for the window switches and was like * W T F * ?!!

I can't understand why Vauxhall did that, the flagship Corsa with no electric windows. Yet a Nova SRi had them as standard, strange.

Hence my dumbfoundment! My SR has electric windows, central locking and valet mirrors (e.g. with lights) on the sun visors.

So I was expecting the same if not more with the Corsa GSi - bizarre.

Yeah mine had a sunroof, electric windows, and electric mirrors, PAS, ABS.

Only thing it did'nt have was Air Con which I believe was in a optional extra.

Air con wasnt an extra until after the GSi's stopped production.

Electric windows/mirrors and sunroof were the only GSi options

The year was 1993, it was a strange time out there....
