its gonna be more than a grand to get that done... in my opinion, i dont think its worth it... cuz if the car didnt have it in the first place and u go and get it done... its not going to be like original and u may run into problems...

but other ppl here might say otherwise.. soo its really up to you...

The sunroof is a cool option to have. I would call it a moon roof for me because I mainly open it at night.

^all hondas have moonroofs, not sunroofs. (from the factory)
i would say not to do it. aftermarket sunroofs are more trouble than their worth. also, your car WILL lose value with an aftermarket sunroof installed.

Moonroofs might also cause dimples.

A hole will be torn into your roof and it will be replaced with a piece of glass.

It looks cool, and depending on what kind of aftermarket part you have, it might do cool things, like move back, move up, be removable, but in the end, its just a piece of glass to seal the hole in your roof.

Civics that are available with them were designed with them in mind, aftermarket parts try to do the same thing, but they have different quality and also rely heavily on the manner and professionalism of the installers.

I'm just giving you the heads up, if you like one that you find, go for it as long as you trust the installers. Otherwise though, it is just a piece of glass to look through, its not like you're watching stars while driving...

well the problem with the "OZ" honda is they dont do any modification...
last time i ask them if i could get a bigger rim...and they reckon dont do it....because i might lose the warranty.....
the car really come in basic and one model only (GLI)....i supposed if we compare it with USA, its completely different....
this thing really frustrate me........
What is dimple anyway???????? ( noob question )

Aftermarket sunroofs are notorious for leaking, not to mention you put a big hole in the roof, which is a structural member of the car. Whether or not they reinforce it enough when they cut a hole in it, I don't know. Either buy the car with the hole in the roof to begin with, or don't bother.
