Yeh powered electric will be $2000+ .. few guys have done this and been quoted 2200/2300 fitted...for TVS (think it was a 740M or something like that) electric sunroof...but managed to barter down to 2K.

http://www.prestigesunroofs.com.au/ 2 guys on the forum have had the hollinder 700 fitted by the above company in Burswood Victoria...no good to u i know but can get quotes of them...be very close to what perth will have

Well factory option of the sunroof was 2200+ for the ELs so you are looking at that price. To be honest sunroofs are well worth it =D...lucky i bought mine with one.

phong =P~

Prestige sunroofs do em here in perth.9317 1944 and they're in Booragoon. They advertise from $795 for sliding sunroofs ( manual ) and also sell electric ones fitted.

A mate fitted a pop up sunroof for his pano and it looked sweet.

elecrtic without a doubt. If you are going to go and get a hole cut in your roof, you may as well get it done the best way possible.

Personally I find sunroofs have two settings. The "popup" is to let every other driver know you have a sunroof and the "slide back" whcih serves the purpose of drying you hair on the way to work....

Or if you slide the roof all the way back and wind down all your windows it sucks out all the rubbish....
