Just make sure that you buy a high Quality roof and have a High Quality company put it in..

I wouldn't, if the gears break or go bad in the motor, you're SOL unless you can find another one and then you've got a huge useless piece of glass in the middle of your car that if not installed properly, has the possibility of leaking, creaking....etc...


But I'm biased b/c my LX came with an optional one from the factory and I hate it and it finally broke the other day. It's getting replaced with CF.

I had one installed on an '03 Corolla. It was a custom setup made in Norway with a five year warranty. I got it through the Toyota dealer so there's no telling what it would actually cost. I think I paid around $900 (to the dealer, new car).It closed itself if you forgot and would open both as a slider andlift from the rear. One touch close and all that crap with lit controls at night. Very cool but I'm with smaglik, I don't think it's worth it ina nine year old car unless you plan to keep it for another nine.

There may still be manual ones around for a lot less, they just open from the rear. The two I had put in ('79 Caprice & '88 Mini Blazer) wore over time and would slam shut at highway speeds.
