We decided not to get the Sun roof for 3 reasons.

1. When extended, the SR makes the car look weird IMO
2. It does reduce the headroom in the car
3. It's one more thing that can leak or have other issues
4. (I know I said 3) If you leave it open just once, for just 10mins, and a sudden rain storm hits, you're screwed!

I really, really like my sunroof. That being said, just about every vehicle I've owned, including my current Yukon, has had a sunroof and I never used them. (I think I occasionally opened the roof in my F250 King Ranch) But I open this cars sunroof every time I get in it unless it's raining. I just love the light it lets in and fresh air. It adds to the driving pleasure of this vehicle.

I shot some pictures real quick of my IOM with sunroof. I'm too lazy to pull her out of the garage for pictures right now so you'll have to excuse the poor lighting and the fact I couldn't get very far away for full body shots.

Edited to add: sorry about the third picture being so big. I thought I resized them all but apparently missed that one.

Exclamation

I love the sunroof for all of the mentioned reasons and use it EVERY time I drive the car -- if it's raining I just open the vent.

The one thing I wish it did was close with one touch like it opens. You can feel the second click on the switch when you press it all the way in, like it's supposed to have express close, I just wish it worked. Some kind of close when you hit the remote lock would be nice, too.

I think those days are over. T-tops were a different story.

Got a sunroof on our 1SS L99 and love it. The sunroof adds more to the car then the mohawk does in my opinion. Here are some pictures of my camaro with the sunroof from different angles.

Sunroofs are winning. I just left a Camaro gathering here in Md. There were 5 new Camaros there- All had sunroofs.
Its the only way to go in my opinion.

I bet that sunroof is also good for sucking a fart right out the car after eating a bean burrito at the local taco hut.

And today's award for Post That Best Matches Name and Avatar goes to...

Oh, and to answer the question: I've never had a car that had one. I wouldn't go out of my way to get one, but I wouldn't mind one either. I am neutral towards the sunroof.

Sun roof is great; I am 6 foot and have plenty of room with the sun roof.

Thanks,

I use my sunroof all the time. The only time I even think about the reverse mohawk is when I see threads like this. And no, I don't miss it.

oh yeah, 6' tall and I no problems with headroom or visibility.

Personally, I like the reverse mohawk more. I think it adds a little more rigidity to the car and makes it look more aggressive.
Just a personal opinion though. To each his own.

Sunroof all the way--especially here in Los Angeles!....

you can pop it up during hot days while its parked to keep the interior cool and at night or dusk open it up for a cool breeze....

adds to the value...

looks cool...

answer to the outdated t-top design (without having to lug those damn panels to the trunk)...

and I cant imagine owning a car without it as my last 4-cars had one

(BTW--mohawk haircuts are awesome just for the record!)

to boot the 2SS RS Summit White I ordered has one too!
