Sunroof!! Finally!

I finally found a company to put in a sunroof!

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:

Looks awesome! I really miss my Integra moonroof...

Any comments on the net weight gain? How about wind/road noise?

What about loss of headroom? Did they need to replace and/or lower the entire headliner?

Did they mention any tricky parts to the install? Did you figure out why it wasn't recommended for an SL?

Any noticeable impact on your watts/mile or driving range?

Now if you could just add a fan for the vent position (powered by the solar panel even)...

Thanks for blazing this trail!

Weight - no idea -30 lbs?
Wind noise is very low, much better than other ones I've had.
Said there was nothing at all difficult about it. No idea why they wouldn't do it w/ SL. Nothing in the way.
Probably an inch to two lost in headroom, but I'm only 5'8". They recovered the headliner with same color fabric. Looks factory.
Can't imagine I'll notice any difference in range, etc.

Very very nice!

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.
