Who has a sunroof in their car and do you like it?
I have one in my car and I absolutely love it.In fact when I was looking for a car it was on my wish list.
For the last 10-15 years most of my cars have just had air con as that was the fashion and now to be back in a car with a sunroof is great.
On a sunny summer evening pottering through the leafy lanes with the sunroof open is bliss. :)
 
+1

First thing on wishlist :thumb:
 
+1 very nice to have.

Better than that is panoramic sun roof where the whole thing opens up, unfortunately haven't seen it on Porsche!

:eek:
 
You mean the 996/997 Targa?

(or even the glass MAXI-ROOF of the 991?)
 
Came as standard on mine as a 40th Anniversary model but to be honest don't really use it that much. Suspect it was an expensive option when new back in the day - someone will have a price list, it would be interesting to know costs.
 
Sunroof

Got one on my 996 c4 wasn't sure if I liked it at first, but grown on me now
when blasting down the country lanes :thumb:
 
+1, def top of the options pile!
 
It was always a no no for me.
Why would you want to cut a hole in a major structural part of the car ?

But.......now I have one in my C2 I love it.
A nice bit of air circulation and a chance to hear that lovely engine out back :D

£814.13 (£715+VAT)
 
After from checking to see if it worked I didn't open mine on my C4 in over 3 years and I only expect to have opened the one on my Turbo once (already done) in the time I own that too.

Same with CD players and, to a lesser extent, radios.

Bargain then - had expected the cost to be much higher. This thread has prompted me to get the thing open a bit more now.
 
I didn't have one on my 964 and that didn't have aircon, do it would have been a bit of a sweat box the last few weeks. I have one on the current 996 and it is great, once you open a window a bit to stop the pressure. For me I'd love a cab so the sunroof is a bonus but it wasn't on any must have buying list.

Add in inflation, and that is probably circa £1,200.

Bit of a cheek really, when the 993 had a sunroof as standard across the board (except sports models requiring its removal for homologation etc)
 
+1 love the sun roof and tend to open the windows about 1" as it reduces the booming.
 
Hi

I must have a sunroof. I use mine often. It does not need to be sunny. I just like the increased airflow and light.
