Good grief. That's an amazing job there on that climate control Darja. Well done! The panel really does look factory fitted! :D

Rear electric windows are dependant on model - TZ/GTi trim har rear ones - lesser ones have front only. Most better spec UK cars have the glass sliding roof (TGD, 16 TR etc). Drivers side electric mirrors are rare.

For example our ZX 1.9D Avantage (94) has passenger side electric mirror, front only electric windows and a sliding roof.

ZX's nearly all seem to have N/S elec mirrors but I've never seen one with drivers side elec mirror??

I have one wish, I found on the internet clear direction indicator (on the wing, on the side). It was tuning shop or something in GB and they have "smoke" and "clear". I want to buy it, but I am afraid of post price, just the "thing" costs 35 eur and + post, that's lot of money for something like this. Do you know, where to buy it? Or do you know cheeper?

And what's about tuning bx? ( I mean something nice, not tuZing :twisted: )

We have just http://www.mkkosa.cz/produkty/citro%EBn ... araznik.21 this, it looks like copy of BX SPORT....

Yes, It's quite a bit more expensive so I can see why recharging is more popular for you. 20 Pounds = 30 Euro is the average price but it is possible to get them cheaper. I got a pair of genuine Citroen rear spheres for about 13 Pounds = 20 Euro each

most expensive is central sphere.

I'm not friend of "refilling", I don't believe it, and I don;t know how long it will be working.
but you can have refill from 3.5 Pounds to 7 for one (we call it ball :lol: )

That's a good price. I have not found any place near me where I can get them recharged. I believe it also needs a special valve to be fitted.
