My wife and I just got an 05 Impala LS and she wanted one with a sunroof but we got a good deal on this car without a sunroof.

There was a guy there talking about after market sunroofs.....anyways,I couldn't see paying 3,000 more for just a sunroof.

Does anybody have an after market sunroof in their car?

I had an after market sunroof in a VW when I was a teenager. It started leaking bad after a year or so. I have seen some work very well, however.

I have never had one installed in any of my vehicles. I have seen them in several other people's cars.

One word of advice...

any time you cut a non-factory sealed hole in the top of your car, also invest in good rain gear. I've never seen one that doesn't develop a leak over time.

Factory installed sunroofs usually have a drain hose that runs from the sunroof's gutter down into the A-pillar (along edge of windshield). Factory sunroofs let any water that gets in drain out while aftermarket sunroofs must attempt to keep all the water out all the time.

Well , we haven't got one yet but, the price range is from $300 for a manual sunroof to $1000 for a moonroof.

The installers told me that they rarely have any come back for leak problems and they will repair a leak for free.
