Very cool...but I'm well over 6' so it isn't going to happen for me. Plus those warm summer months.

And for anyone wondering about miles/kwh, I drove my normal route to work this am with the sunroof open fully (same speeds, etc.) and my figures were the same as they always are... I reset the console reading every night when I pull in the garage.

Is it my imagination or is the sunroof sticking up on the corners? Looks like a little tweaking to get the sunroof to sit flush.

It's too bad Nissan hasn't put this in a standard on the high end model, or even an option. With the solar panel on the rear end, you likely could generate enough power to keep that puppy cracked and run a fan to circulate air and keep the cabin temp, while parked, down somewhat in the summer.

Or even tie this in with carwings and let you open it before you get in the car to let a little heat out. Shoot, even being able to roll the windows down remotely would be great.

Looks quality, nice job! I really miss having a sunroof in the LEAF.

I didn't want to put too much money into the LEAF and my one splurge was leather seats. I'm extremely happy with the leather seats but a sunroof would have been a close second option.

Looks really good. Seems like a good price considering the amount of work involved.
Did they install drain tubes or something to handle the water run-off?

Yes there are drain tubes to keep it from leaking into the car if what gets in/around the tracks. I could definitely have purchased a less expensive roof, but I liked the double panel dual-venting model I got.

to OP:

The only way I figured out how to post is to become a Gold member by paying $30. Then you get a Attach file/Browse option in the bottom for you to attach any file including a picture.
