IT IS. My family member has a Camaro SS and i'm sure if I asked him if he knows he has a reverse mowhawk on his roof he will say huh??? I would think the same with ALL camaro drivers who don't browse this forum.

If you don't like the Sunroof that's cool but don't say it's because you LOVE the reverse mohawk that doesn't make sense no one knows you have them lol

It almost broke my heart the car I drooled over for years was too small for me (I'm 6'3). I left the lot. The dealer showed me the hardtop on another visit and its been love ever since! I was going to get the sunroof although I'd never seen it open at the time (but meh). The lack of head room in the Sunroof almost ruined a sale! Reverse 'Hawk FTW!

I'll agree that nobody would call it, refer to it, or know what you meant if you refered to it, as 'reverse mohawk' but I GAURANTEE you they noticed the roof. I suppose you may have a few owners out there who never wash their cars, aren't tall enough to see the roof, or crawl up to their car and stay low before they get in.

I know differing opinion can hurt peoples feelings a bit, but let's be real here. An owner of a 5th Gen Camaro knows every inch of their car. What are the chances a typical 5th Gen coupe owner says, "OMG, I never noticed that indent there"?

And all those coupes ordered were just, what? People who didn't know what a sunroof is? So why all the coupe owners? I'm thinking that more people like the roof and notice it than you think.

I agree! I am one of the first R6P guys and when they revealed pics of the sunroof open, alot of people jumped to the solid roof. I oredered my car before the pics of the sunroof were out and I ordered my car without it because I loved the reverse mohawk. People that look at these cars notice all the lines of the car and that includes the roof. It adds character unlike a flat roof.

And to the OP, if the purple car on 30" wheels is yours, I would be willing to bet that your driver seat is laid almost flat so you more then likely arent going to have head room issues in anything.

I’m 6’4 and have the sun roof. Ordering with or without the sun roof had me in a quandary for a while. Then I sat in one with the sun roof and said the hell with it. I wear a cap most of the time and have no problems. The one thing that I did not consider and wished I had was a helmet! I have not taken the car to a track yet but know I will have to wear a helmet when I do. The helmet is going to cause a problem. :( But I do love the sun roof!

Just an FYI

6'4" here, notice the only time I don't notice my head rubbing the headliner is if I am wearing a tight hat, otherwise I notice I am 'leaning' to the middle of the car somewhat when I drive.

Wow. What a pain. I see why some tall guys do without the sunroof.

I have my seat all the way up and still don't run the top.

I know im not that tall being 5'9 and all but the guys that are really tall defending the sunroof etc. Wouldnt you want to raise your seat up off the floor a little to see over the hood to help overall judgment of your car? Personally I raise my seat as high as I can.

Edit: Disreguard that made no sense... Guess your head would already be up high.. der der.. bored at work ; ;

Even drivers that aren't extremely tall with extra inches of poundage on their backsides could sit higher in the seat and rub their heads.............

Agreed- My Camaro would not be as much fun without my sunroof and I never open it. Justs lets the sunshine in. IO interior and sunroof. Nothing compares.
Also, It's one of the most popular options on the Camaro.

6'3 - it's a bit tight but doable and not a hazard at all.

Belive it or not people, but the sun roof is the same one found it the 2008 pontiac grand prix gxp, that's the car I traded in for my ss. I'm 5'10 and have no problem getting in or out as long as the seat in all the way down. The only problem that I have encountered is with the XM radio reception, with the roof open part, or all the recption fades in and out sometimes. Other than that I love it.
