at work, i think they have used Prestiage sunroofs or something like that, hopefully the spelling of it is also right, i will either tomorrow or next day get the details of the company we use if you like, for a full electric sunroof is around $2000+ so i'd say around $1000 or so would be for installation

supposedly when the sunroof factory fitted was about 2400 or something for the EF-EL so for 1000 i think its a bargain.

$1000 for installation a bargain?

I would be supplying all the material, they would just have to put it in!

i guess....i myself dun want to fork out 1000 dollars to put glass on my roof. luckily i bought my EL with sunroof *phew* if u have gain then u can try installing it urself? nothing beats a nice day in the sun blasting profanity when u found out u did something completely wrong.

Mmmmmmmm sunroof.

If anyone has had a sunroof that they have purchased / installed. PLEASE let me know where you purchased it from, who installed it and how much.

I want one for my car too. They look really good on e-series Falcons.

Ahhhh.. I love my sunroof.. :D

It sure comes in handy when someone gives you road rage... you just pull in front of them, open up the sunroof, and give 'em the ol' one finger salute.... with class!!

I went to prestige sunroofs in burwood

$2000

It is two full days of work to put one in, so if you have 16 hours of labour @ a guess of $65 an hour, that makes it around the $1000 mark for installation which isnt to bad

Go and see Owen at Precision Sunroofs
36 / 1 Commercial Rd.
Highett
Vic 3190

0408 385 659

Very friendly and helpful. Tilt, vent and slide (internally) sunroof, supplied and fitted $1850 about 8 months ago.

If you just want the pop up one I think that was like $600. But I am so glad that I went the T, V & S. Jumped into a mate car the other day and he has the pop up one and apart from letting the sun in and a little bit of fresh air, that was about it. Also the T, V & S has an internal blind if you don't want the direct sun.
