MKIV and MKVI... Nope. They are notorious wiring gremlins... more so the IV. Google windows just dissapeared mkIV.

MkI, MKII, MKIII, MKVI and MKVII only

Haha! It did happen to a buddy of mine with a mk4 GTI. He had literally duct tape his windows shut to keep the rain out.

You should look at the maintenance required to regularly drive a Ferrari on the road. A few years of maintenance will buy a damn Golf R in cash

And you'll have a higher chance of being stuck on the road with some kind of problem in the Italian.
