It wasn't that expensive an option - £680 seems to ring a bell from when I got my MCS
new in Jan 06.
Thing is sunroofs kinda went out of fashion in cars here in the UK when aircon started becoming the must have accessory. Manufacturers fitted it as standard over a sunroof. I remember in the 80s if a car didn't have a sunroof it was considered poorly equipped. That's when those cut out aftermarket moonroofs became popular - along with all the leaking problems at no extra cost! Ironically a car with one of those dodgy sunroofs is now worth less than one with a standard roof when it comes to classics like old Golf GTis.
I prefer a sunroof over aircon but given our climate now - you've got to have both - aircon is worth it's weight in gold on those muggy rainy days. Plus it's great for demisting the screen in a flash.
Think you'll find more DS MCS
cars with a black roof with a sunroof fitted as it just blends perfectly. The car will be out there - it's just a case of waiting for it to come along - don't compromise as you'll regret it in the future.
The markets dead sluggish at the mo
- a lot of people are sticking with what they've got. The Sept 1st 58 plate may bring some more stock onto the market.
Look forward to hearing you've found one - they're the business!
