Hi Keggy.

It certainly is possible. It all depends if you are going to keep the car and if you think spending the money on it is worth it,.

I had it done to my wifes punto that didnt have it, but luckily my mate is an alarm / radio fitter so did it for free. I just paid for the parts.

I had a remote central locking alarm (made by Cobra) fitted first, and then the remote central locking solenoids fitted into each door and wired up to the alarm. When the alarm is deactivated the doors unlock, and vice versa with locking.

I'd have thought to get it done by a company you are looking about 150 - 200. Might be wrong though.

I too was thinking of electric windows for the Punto as well, but decided not go down that route.
