Need some Advice!!!!

I have the sunroof option on my 2SS RS. I'm thinking about changing it and taking the sunroof option off of the order. I think I like the look of the reverse mohawk better. The reverse mohawk flows better with the lines of the Camaro. If you guys could please give me some input, advice, and maybe some comparison photos. I think i plan to call my salesman tomorrow to change my order but just wanted to get a last consent on what you guys think. Thanks in advance guys!!

Personally I never liked the sunroof look on this car. Although it's nice to vent out the heat when it's hot outside.

I'm not getting a sun roof purely for that reason that you loose the reverse mowhawk roof line which I like a lot.

I like the mohawk myself. Also think sunroof would add some weight, if you care about them kinda things.

Love the reverse mohawk, it is unique, to say the least about this awesome hot rod.

Reverse mohawk ... not gettin it. I am getting the sunroof tho. Not gettin why anyone wants a huge gap in their roof (reverse mohawk). If you want a sunroof, get it.

You need to ask first if the users who comment have seen both versions in person to have a good opinion on both. I keep saying it over the last few years this car has some great lines that photos don't do it justice. That said I've seen both versions as attractive. The corvette like reverse Mohawk looks nice but the lines don't quite seem to line up with the cowl hood. The sunroof in person looks good when closed the roof looks sleek and clean same kind of effect you get with the v6 spoiler-less rear end it actually looks just as good. Besides the extra light it can let in without the sunshade it vents the car quickly and gives you nice views of the sky. Anyhow those are my 2 cents if you concerned about weight added how about going on a diet.

IDK, it's your decision. I have never had a sunroof before. I hate the fact that it goes up and out, and I have been told that it adds a considerable amount of weight so it is an option that i am not getting for those reasons...

I'm torn on this issue too for all of the reasons listed above, but I don't want additional rattles or squeaks either.

On the other hand, I like the extra sun and fresh air. Additiionally, I worry that without having roll down rear windows the car might be prone to making that "drumming" type of noise/vibration that so many of the new cars make now when you only roll down the front windows. The sunroof would eliminate some of that problem. God how I hate that noise!

I ordered 2SS/RS with the sunroof but have seen both and took the sunroof off the order....I would rather spend that 900 bucks on a catback system.

Ordered the sunroof. Bought '08 Malibu for my wife with the sunroof and we use it all the time. Mechanically the sunroof for the Camaro looks very similar to the Malibu. I recommend it, if its something that you might use.
