    Cobb window motor direct replacement. You need the Cobb accessport to tune it, though.

    Window motor fluid cooler will also help out a lot.

    In the time it takes to close all 4 windows and the moonroof at the same time, I can make a pot of coffee and pay a few bills.
    Not so much anymore.

    Just don't open the windows = no need to close. It's cold out, anyways.
    You can't have everything - where would you put it?

    This.

    They are a lot faster. When you have all 4 motors going at one time, you're drawing a LOT of power from the battery to do so...

    I have the same problem, along with a stuck-down window the other night. "firstworldproblems" - ya so are 95% of the things we do. That's not normal, nor acceptable for a 2013 vehicle.

    Then get rid of it? Get a Mustang? Take it to the dealer? Install big block window motors for moar horsepower?
