Default Power Window ?

I'm looking at snagging the power windows off of a pre-93 Miata, but my question is if they are going to be compatible with my 95. Did any parts change between the years or anything like that?
Thanks!

How about we trade, my power windows for your crank windows?

I've got a '95.

I would honestly rather have manual windows.
There's a reason why at work we have 35 parted miatas and 0 drivers side power window motors in stock. Also, FWIW, the auto's power window switch is different than the manual's pw switch.

Well, that explains why my driver's regulator went so fast! I didn't know that they had so many problems.

I would like: Power passengers window and crank drivers window.

That way you don't have to reach over while driving to crank up the passenger window, yet you retain the blazing speed of the crank to impress the lady at the drivethrough.

I always wanted a RHD vehicle so I could really impress the drive through lady.

Nothing like reversing through the Wendy's parking lot...

I think I've decided what I'm going to do. I'm going to keep the manual windows, but get rid of the chrome Metro Motorsports cranks that are in there since I have no need or like for them (which was part of my deciding factor in looking into power windows), and get a set of stock cranks back in there and see how I like it.
Anyone got a pair lying around?
