Does anyone have any expeirece with Aftermaket power window regs?

Seems as if they can be had for a little over 30 bones on ebay and around 60 elsewhere...... I have manual regs laying around but for some reason would just rather keep the power than drill holes in my door cards heh.

Thanks in advance.

Yeah I figured there was no way a $30 reg could be any good. About how long did the others last you?

They mainly seem okay. But after you've replaced a couple power regulators, you get the nail polish and drill the holes.

Went manual two years ago in my GLS and could not be happier.:D

I've used the cheap ass regs and they've lasted me about 2 years. I get about the same life out of an OEM regulator. I can't tell the difference between OEM and cheap-o...so, I go with the cheap-o reg's.

If its gonna break...might as well only pay $30 for it, right?
