Mate, where's your soul? Can't you see yourself flying down a coast road on a glorious sunny day with a beautiful woman in a full house Mustang convertible or, even better, a 60's Galaxie with one of those fold away roofs and about a milk crate of storage in a 3 acre boot, or a '57 Chev Bel-Air convertible, or a Triumph Stag convertible with a worked 4.4 Leyland, or a Shelby Cobra, or a Cord, or a ...... ****, I think I've just had an orgasm.
Hollinda (Ithink thats them) are very good sunroofs though not cheap. I think they start from about $300. I actually like sunroofs now after running an Audi with one and almost every car I work on now has one. Plus the fact that Dad owns a convertible has swayed me.
Nothing on this earth beats holding your newborn child for the first time.
Ive heard that the aftermarket sunroofs can cost anything up to $2000.
I Also heard from from the *gulp* HSV factory that the structual strength increases with there sunroofs...
So if they can improve the strength in the roof then I'm sure anyone else can.
On the topic of leaking, my Dad has had one for the last 5 years and it hasn't leaked yet
I have a sunroof fitted to my car. Never leaked. Controled by electronics anti jam and that sorta thing Tilt/slide.
I don't like the slide side. But the tilt is a great thing. I won't buy a car with just the slide option.
These sunroofs have a internal gutter that prevents water from coming into the interior if the seals fail.
If you're talking about fitting a factory style sliding sunroof, which when closed looks like there was no sunroof there at all, then go for your life. I'd love to find a factory sliding sunroof from an XY GT and fit it to my car in the long run, but I think the cost would be just too great to justify.
I'f you're talking about those cheap and nasty K-Mart performance clear glass pop-up ones that became so popular during the 80's, where just about every cheap lamo wanna-be street machiner hacked up their ride to install, I'd advise against it.
If I've ever gone to look at car for sale and it's had one of those I've walked away immediately. I mean if the owner is stupid enough to hack up the original body work of their car with such a crappy addition, then how many other stupid things have they done to the same car? Most people I know serious about restoring/modifying cars share the same view, as it's just a huge effort and expense to try and remove it and fill in the hole again, to the point where it's not worth trying...
