It is nice to have the extra room for a helmet. But if you are someone who would use a sunroof, you will miss it. I love mine and use it often. I rarely put on the AC.

I also heard the Recaros can seat you lower than the standard Camaro Seats, so the sunroof would be less of a problem if true.

If it were me, and I planned on keeping the car, I would reorder.

I traded my 84 Z28 for a Saturn in the 90s. The dealer cut $500 off my trade in on the the day I was to pick up my Saturn. I asked for the Saturn refund and they refused. I walked. They called my house (before cell phones) and offered me $500 in dealer installed options. I took it. I was an idiot. I always wanted what was promised. I never bought from that dealer owner group again and never will. The car after the Saturn (jeep grand cherokee) I ended up driving 30 miles away to get in order to avoid this douche bag dealer.

Don't settle.

I really like the sunroof and I do track the car (I knew what I was getting myself into. Also I am not that tall). I just love how it makes the inside of the car so much brighter (even when not open) I would reorder

This is my struggle.... I'm waiting to see what they come back with..... I'm only 5'9" and with the Recaro's I don't think I will have an issue with a helmet....... just hate that I may have to wait another 5+ weeks......

You are I are about the same height. Just went and checked fit. With my Recaros all the way down and my helmet on there is a little bit of room above my head. A little bit, not much but I can move around normally.

I would reorder and ask the dealer for some compensation via free accessories for the inconvenience they caused you. Done in a nice a professional manner, they may agree. Get the car exactly how you originally wanted, in the long run it will be worth the additional wait.

5 weeks is a long time to wait when you want the car but every time you drive it you will wish it had a sun roof and that will be for the next 5 years minimum, (a lot longer than 5 weeks).

I get the height issue with the sunroof, which is why I did not get one, but can you have a car at the track on anything but fun days with glass in the roof? I would have thought that was a no-no for safety reasons.

Never had an issue and there are lots of cars out there with sunroofs.

What? There is glass in the windows.... what's the difference?

OP. I'd reorder and get sunroof. I open it as soon as I get in the car. I'm 6' 1" and have no issues with headroom. I actually like the fact that it is a few inches shorter.

This exact thing happened to me with my 2010 SS/RS where they said they forgot to add the 2SS/RS for the halo headlights.

Turns out they located one exactly as I ordered minus the halo headlights and was hoping I'd just take it...they make more money on a car already built...I'd be curious to see how many miles it had on the odometer when you went to pick it up.

Sunroof is overrated in the Camaro. The opening is quite small and it decreases headroom. Besides, a sunroof has no place in a track oriented car like the 1LE. I'd take the car that came in and drive the hell out of it.

I was a guy coming from 4th gens that all had T-tops. I vowed not to get a sunroof because of the headroom issue and the fact that I've seen plenty of them get stuck and stop working. I haven't regretted not having one at all.

No - it's loaded as far as factory options. Funny thing is I was originally going to skip the sunroof out of concerns for helmet room but read the recaro's took care of that....thanks for the verify

I'm going to see what they come up with tomorrow and decide..... if they make up for it properly I'll drive off otherwise the wait begins...again.... )
Summers almost gone and I'm in NJ......
