    Sure, it's possible... but what happens when your computer blue screens and jams the horn on right as you pull up behind a bunch of Hell's Angels on the freeway?

    No, the windows and AC are very useful to have wired. If you don't have a high-end luxury car with auto-windows or you have a crappy AC system, the computer can automate the functions to give you functionality of more expensive cars. The horn, however... I can't picture a situation where you'd need the horn to be computer activated.
