Question how to install power windows.

My car has manual mirrors. I want to upgrade them. I was wondering if anyone has done it and what do I need besides the motors and switches for the console.
thanx
Jase

your title says windows, but your msg says mirrors... which one is it?

for power mirrors it shouldnt be too hard, cuz the motor is in the mirrors so all you'd have to do is buy some mirrors, wire it up and get some switches.. to upgrade to power windows would probably be a bit more work as you'll have to take apart the door frames, install the motors, then install switches etc.. did e30's even come with non-power windows... havent seen it yet
