I think the color of the leather inside is a charcoal gray really nice I wanted black leather but after I seen this I liked it much better. My favorite color is black so I wanted a black car but when I seen this silver one and test drove it and kept it overnight I could wipe my finger along the sides and see dirt on my finger but the car looked spotless. So the car does not show hardly any dust and takes alot less effort to keep clean than a black Bonne. The Wheels or very nice I love those things alot but I am kinda embarised what I paid for them. You no boys and there toys cost is not an issue

I hate to say it but I would stay away from after market sunroofs. A friend of mine worked in the after market industry for years and while I think the quality of his work is second to none he has told me some horror stories. Personally I would never do it myself but if you decide to do so the best advice I can give you is ask questions such as:

How many sun roofs has this shop done?
Who is your most experienced installer?
How many has that person done?
Have you ever put a sun roof in cars similar to mine?
Ask for references and contacts of three past customers who would be willing to give you their opinion.

I know it sounds like a lot of questions just for a sun roof but remember, when that hole is cut there is no going back.

I would also think it would be good to see if maybe they have a reference/contact for someone who has had a sunroof installed by them a while back (year, six months or whatever). That way you know if they stand up to the test of time-and rainstorms .

Anyways, great looking car!! Love the rims!!

Thx for all the tips and I went down to the dealer to talk to him about putting one in he said the price would be 1145 and that is installed all power of course. I brought up all the tips that you guys gave me to him and I was pleased with all his responces and I got some refrences so I am going to call some people tonight and if the shop gets good feedback then I am going to do it. About the tires I would suggest anyone who wants Giovanna wheels they are slick for sure I am REAL happy with mine.

Here is a bitter pic of the car I took that same day.. I well post pics of the sunroof when I get it in... That is if I make up my mind or not to do it I am still getting used to the Digital Camera.
