hands down one of the best things i did to my car was put a sunroof in. see if the budget can stretch to an electric one though.

i saw a ute with a slide up and out electric one the other day....i think it was electric and it looked a bit funny because it seemed as though it had a little wing on top but its still fun to have one...ive got one on my sedan though.
