    Ding ding ding! A lot of them also come with "limited" lifetime warranty's...I got a free one on my last z28 I had because it died after a year or two with a warranty still on it. I think i got it at advanced auto parts if I remember correctly...

    I got mine from the autoparts store as well.

    Few facts about those;

    1. The are re-manufactured, this means that aren't the same quality as OEM and therefore WON'T last as long
    2. Most come with a lifetime warranty, but changing them is harder than running up to the store
    3. You will kill the aftermarket/re-manufactured one unless you change the wiring, or change your habits
    4. Lack of current/voltage is what kills these motors, and the stock wiring isn't up to par

    Autotrix makes a new wiring kit to improve the functionality and life of the motor.

    For me, after changing them countless times, I do these 2 things and haven't replaced one since.

    1. Roll the windows up or down ONLY WHEN THE CAR IS RUNNING (Battery; Running= 13-14 volts, off= 11-12 volts)
    2. Roll ONE window up or down at a time

    These 2 things help ensure the motor gets the proper voltage/current.

    I got mine from advance auto. Mine last about 1-1.5 yrs before I change them. the autotrix kit has helped alot.
