Flickr will give you a link to a single picture but they kind of hide it.. first select an image and select a size.. then you should see a link under the share button I think.. anyways look for it until you find it.

Yes, the photos posted on the earlier pages of this thread came from Flickr, and have links that look like this (though I'm showing you the URL here, rather than embedding it with an Img tag): http://farm6.staticflickr.com/5340/7173 ... 5aee_z.jpg" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Are you sure it's "same color fabric" and not actually the original headliner/headliner fabric?
Happy to show it to anyone interested. The original headliner has no "fabric" per se, it's a pressed board fiber sort of thing... They covered it with a padded cloth headliner material to cover the shade and go around the cut edges of the headliner.

It's a GREAT way to cool down the car. With the sunroof open or vented and the air on recirc, you can feel the air being pulled through the car (especially on your feet!) and it is MUCH quieter than having an window open or cracked!

Use Photobucket.

It supplies the link with img's imbedded on both ends for each individual pic. Copy at Photobucket, paste here and you're done.

Re: Sunroof!! Finally!

The largest Installer in NJ (they have 7 locations and been around since 1977) have told me that they had install issues with the 930 Dual Panel and so they don't carry it anymore :(

I really like it but I don't want to risk it. They claim they've installed 400K sunroofs in the past 35 years.

So I'm getting a Solaire 5300 for $1050 installed.

On this post you say $1299+tax and on YouTube you said $1500.00, Which is it ?

Did they replace the entire head-liner? can you tell the sunroof is an after-market?

Thanks!

Webasto 930 Dual Panel in-built. Auto single vent, double vent, open close, memory position. Sunroof closes automatically when you turn the car off. They moved the dome light back and did a great job on installation! $1299+tax. I can't for the life of me figure out how to load pics or video to this site (even though I have literally hundreds on other forums.) Anyway, here are the links:

I wouldn't get the dual pane roof. Single pane to avoid the pain later down the road. $1050 is a great price. It will look OEM when they are done if they are good. American Sunroof had spec'd the Solaire 4300 for $1395 in San Diego and the 5300 is the same roof with extra control features on the switch like auto close. I personally like the roof to open and close only when I press and hold the button. Keep us posted.

Our '06 Subaru Outback XT has a (much larger!) dual-pane sunroof and we've never had a problem with it. I know everyone says that EVERY sunroof leaks eventually, but honestly, I've never had a sunroof that leaked. That includes a '78 Mercedes I sold to a European collector a couple of years ago. If you take care of them (particularly cleaning the drain tubes), there's no reason you should have problems down the road.

Same here. I never had problems with any sunroofs. Their problem was with the install. They said they had many that the panels didn't line up and so it didn't close right. Maybe they can't cut a straight hole. No idea. I'm still getting one. A single panel moonroof. Not dual panel. I don't want to risk getting the dual panel and have to use an umbrella in the car Everytime I drive in the rain.
