According to parkers.co.uk the 1.4s had electric windows, mirrors and central locking over the 1.4.

So if you wanted electric windows, mirrors and central locking in a 1.4 did you have to buy the 1.4s or could you add these features to a 1.4e?

I want a 1.4e because of its cheaper insurance.

Thanks

......but with the E you get to keep your arms in good shape with the keep fit windows.

1.4s is group 5 insurance and 1.4e is grp 4.

Don't get so caught up in insurance groups, they play a very small part in the price of insurance IMO - they seem to have little relation to the price you get quoted, its just daft. Mine is group 17 and Im 22, but I pay ?600 a year. Besides, you will probably spend the ?50 or so you save on insurance trying to find an E with electric windows!

You could add them, but I don't know if anybody did.

If you want to add them yourself, you'll pay as much as gettin an S in the first place

note, window motors are expensive ?70 each or something like that.

Then because the motors are not directly linked to the switches, you would need to get a whole new control cable set, a drivers door switch panel. And the last problem you may have is that becuase the door motors also house the central conveniance computer system to control each doors window and locks for the alarm system.

Complete nightmare, just get an S model.
