Just something that locks/unlocks all doors. the SPAL kit is the way to go then, in my opinion. it's pretty easy to install, just have to line up the actuator mount spots nicely to ...

SPAL also has a power window kit, but...

if you deleted the partition then the partition recovery program should just essentially reset the partition to being valid, so all your data would of been restored ... much quicker and easier than file recovery

timing belt and water pump are what you should do at the same time, at a minimum, since everything is apart. as far as any additional stuff you need for those items, i dont think there are any.
