I also found that if you take care of the rubber surround it seals very well for a long time. I've used Armor-All on the seals and that's helped keep them from dry rotting.

On my Saturn it only leaked on my twice in the 200k miles and 13 years that I've owned it. Both times the drain tube popped off and I had to put it back on. Two separate tubes... two zip ties later... no problems. I went ahead and did the last two the second time.

I've got my 2013 Leaf scheduled to have one installed next week. having a sun roof was one of my criteria for a new car, not many electric cars with that option. having the vent open on a hot Utah day will be welcome.

Nice. Which roof, how much and where, if you don't mind me asking? Post some pics when they're done.

I called Autosunroof.com in Hackensack NJ and Luis told me that Rick is the boss and that he gave me a really low price on the 5300. $1050 installed plus tax.

Luis said that he charges $995 installed for the 4300

The 5300 was out of stock. He said it's a Hot item. So he said by Tuesday he should have some and he needs my car 36 hours.

Can't wait. Next week is my birthday. Perfect gift to myself :)

That looks so cool. I should have insisted on a sunroof installed in my new 2013 Cayenne Red SL. I'll know next time. I really miss having a sunroof. :x

Why wait till next time? I won't buy my next car for at least 7 years I'm not waiting till next time. My 2013 is 6 weeks old and I'm getting it now.

I wanted the TVS 930 but the installer I'm using said they had problems with it. I found out today that the problem was noise, they said many of their customers complained it made a lot of air noises while driving. And so they decided to stop using it.

I really like the way it looks, oh Well. I don't want to force them to install it and take the risk. These people have installed 400K sunroofs since 1977. So I'm pretty sure they know what they are doing.

How much are they charing you to install the TVS 930?

I'd urge both of you to request the Solaire 4300. I have done *many* aftermarket sunroofs and every one of the other models being considered or installed have potential issues. ASC has been doing this for longer than just about everyone in the entire country.
