Only thing is, on the manual sunroof, if you want to have the whole roof open, you got to pop the glass out and put it in your back seat or something, otherwise it just vents. If you are going to keep the car, it might be worth it to go ahead and purchase the power roof.

Ya I think I may opt for the power moon roof. I was checking out a website yesterday and it showed which one I should use for my specific car. I believe it was $300 something for the kit so Im assuming around $600-$700 with installation.

I have a aftermarket roof in my car (previous owner did it) and its great. However up here in the Northeast I would guess around $1200 or so including installation for a power roof. Regardless if you like your car and know you are going to keep it for awhile go ahead and do it.

Like CFoote, the previous owner installed my moonroof. It'* a lot like factory, except the motor is mounted in the front instead of in the back. I guess i don't have any complaints about it, other than the PITA it was to replace the headliner. At my local junkyard there are 2 other bonnies with the same roof, so i bet you could get a real deal for one at the scrapyard. But then there'* installation...


And the worst part: They have to cut away the headliner board. Check out my thread in General Chat
