I saw an EF fairmont at a wrecker with a sunroof and they only wanted $200 for it and that was before bargaining. The sunroof is the cheap part, apparently to have them fitted it cost something rediculous like $1000.
If you're not going to tackle the job yourself I wouldn't reccomend it. The pop top variety is a much cheaper/easier alternative although probably not as big and not electric

Man never fit a pop up job, they de-value your car, i have knocked back buying a car because it had one of those things in it.
In the 70's and 80's they were a popular thing but soon died, a lot used to say they weaken the roof, not sure if there was any truth in that though, and they always leak.

Well, speaking from experience, ours NEVER leaks, and never has, keeps the car alot cooler when parked, and is a cheaper alternative to the TVS ones.

Good / logical advice :)

Personally, I'm a fan - I like the cabin filled with light - meh, that's just me...I always wanted a sunny in my first car (86 Corolla Seca lol)...but knew it was not worthwhile...so when I got my EL Wagon...I put the biggest one I could fit in :) After selling the wagon, I couldn't *not* have one...so I bit the bullet again *ugh* and put one in the ghia...I'd say sunroofs aren't for tall people or noggins resembling beaten nutsacks due to sunburn factor â„¢ (LOL - sorry Paul...I still haven't got the whole beaten nutsack line out of my head yet :))
